The GRAPHICS GEMS Series was started in 1990 by Andrew Glassner. The vision and purpose of the Series was - and still is - to provide tips, techniques, and algorithms for graphics programmers. All of the gems are written by programmers who work in the field and are motivated by a common desire to share interesting ideas and tools with their colleagues. Each volume provides a new set of innovative solutions to a variety of programming problems.
Graphics Gems II is a collection of articles shared by a diverse group of people that reflect ideas and approaches in graphics programming which can benefit other computer graphics programmers. This volume presents techniques for doing well-known graphics operations faster or easier. The book contains chapters devoted to topics on two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometry and algorithms, image processing, frame buffer techniques, and ray tracing techniques. The radiosity approach, matrix techniques, and numerical and programming techniques are likewise discussed. Graphics artists and computer programmers will find the book invaluable.
Graphics Gems IV is the newest volume in the Graphics Gems series. All of the books in the series contain practical solutions for graphics problems using the latest techniques in the field. The books in this series have become essential, time saving tools for many programmers. Volume IV is a collection of carefully crafted gems which are all new and innovative. All of the gems are immediately accessible and useful in formulating clean, fast, and elegant programs. The C programming language has been used for most of the program listings, although several of the gems have C++ implementations. *IBM version Includes one 3 1/2 high-density disk.
