A letter of verification for approved accommodations can be obtained from DSP. Please be sure the letter is delivered to me or to TA as early in the semester as possible. The phone number for DSP is All students are expected to understand and abide by these principles. Students will be referred to the Office of Student Judicial Affairs and Community Standards for further review, should there be any suspicion of academic dishonesty.
No work will be accepted if it is more than five days late. Academic Honesty Academic honesty is a very serious matter and can result in very serious consequences.
Note that academic offences may be discovered and handled retroactively, even after the semester in which the course was taken for credit. This is a challenging class aimed at teaching you the fundamentals of computer graphics.
You wont learn much if you cheat but you might get a good grade if you get away with it. If all you want is a good grade take an easier class where you wont have to cheat! Any activity that has the effect of significantly impairing the ability of another student to learn.
Hughes, was published in June of An undergraduate version, by the same four authors and D. Phillips, Introduction to Computer Graphics, was published in Brookshire Conner, and David Niguidula was published in April, Sanders was published by Addison-Wesley in Coons Award , the L.
Mulligan, Jr. Indeed, it features new material and, in some cases, a different approach to exposition, all added with the needs of its intended audience in mind.
This book is designed to be used in a one-to two-semester course in computer graphics in any four-year college or university and, assuming only a small amount of mathematical preparation, for a one-semester course in community colleges or other two-year institutions. Introduction to Computer Graphics is also an ideal book for the professional who wants to learn the rudiments of this dynamic and exciting field, whether to become a practitioner or simply to gain an appreciation of the far-ranging applications of computer graphics.
This book is not meant to supplant CGPP as being more current or in any way more comprehensive. These are chapters, however, where, because of the dizzying pace at which the field is moving, older material was dropped and the hardware performance and cost figures were updated.
One such example can be found in Chapter 4, where the statement from CGPP--which, bear in mind, was just published in that " Other major differences and strengths of Introduction to Computer Graphics are: The computer language used throughout the book, both in pseudocoded program fragments and complete working programs, is modern ANSI C.
The use of C, rather than Pascal as in CGPP, is consistent with both current teaching and professional practice, especially in graphics. As a direct benefit of the use of C in the book, there is now a one-to- one correspondence between the data types and functions of the code used in this book with those of the SRGP and SPHIGS software packages that are available free of charge to adopters to accompany the book see page The SPHIGS package mentioned above has been substantially enhanced with many new features, such as multiple light sources, improved rendering, and improved pick correlation for better interactive manipulation.
The book features several worked-out examples, some of which are quite extensive. These examples are strategically located in chapters where they best enhance the exposition of difficult concepts. One such example is a complete working program for interactively defining Bezier parametric cubic curves.
The importance of computer graphics to the emerging field of multimedia is introduced by describing some examples, complete with figures, and providing their supporting references. A mathematical preliminaries section has been added to the chapter on Geometrical Transformations.
This section provides sufficient information for the reader to understand and use all subsequent mathematically oriented material in the book. Potential Syllabi There are several paths that a reader can take through this book. A few are suggested here, but it is entirely feasible to select one suiting the reader's circumstances.
Even the order of study acan be permuted.
For example, the material on hardware could come either earlier or later in a syllabus than is suggested by Chapter 4's ordinal positioning. A minimal one-semester course emphasizing 2D graphics. Where the goal is to provide a good, but not rigorous, overview of elements of mostly 2D graphics, this course of study will be appropriate for students in a two- or four-year college or university.
Chapter Sections 1 All 2 Sect. This syllabus will provide a strong foundation in graphics for readers who are mathematically well prepared. Chapter Sections 1 All 2 All 3 Sects. Since many readers of Introduction to Computer Graphics will be interested in consulting its more advanced and comprehensive parent, the preface to CGPP follows this one.
Please find the this title included on the gopher site. There the reader will find a discussion of CGPP's important features and suggestions for structuring courses based on that book. Information on how to obtain the EIM is acquired by sending e-mail to eim cs.
No message body is necessary; just enter EIM or eim on the Subject line. The e-mail reply will contain a description of the contents of the EIM and how to obtain any part of it. It is necessary to have Internet ftp access to retrieve the EIM.
No other distribution method is available. The EIM comprises four parts. They are: Expanded versions of the syllabi suggested above. The rationale for each syllabus is described on a step-by-step basis.
Also, where appropriate, aids to teaching the material are suggested. Program fragments as well as complete working programs are provided. All the artwork from the book. These figures will be useful for preparation of lecture slides.
The artwork files are organized by chapter so that an instructor can obtain just the figures needed for a particular syllabus. Freely available software resources.
Packages such as SIPP Simple Polygon Processor and Rayshade, a ray tracing program, implement many of the realistic rendering techniques described in the text.
Information on how to obtain these and other packages is provided. Acknowledgments First, it should be stated that while all the a uthors of CGPP participated to some degree in the preparation of this book, I assume full responsibility for any new errors introduced in the adaptation process.
David Sklar was a guest author for CGPP, and much of the material he contributed to that book remains here in Chapters 2 and 7.
He was helpful to me in locating electronic versions of computer code and artwork from the original book.
Peter Gordon, my editor, always had timely, wise, and calming advice throughout the duration of this project. Jim Rigney, my production supervisor, spent lots of helpful hours teaching me the "tricks of the trade".
Many people helped with various aspects of the book.
