This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Symposium on Smart Graphics, SG 2009, held in Salamanca, Spain in May 2009. The 15 revised full papers together with 8 short papers and 2 demonstrations presented were carefully reviewed and selected. The papers are organized in topical sections on visual analytics, user studies, human computer interaction, computer graphics and artificial intelligence, as well as virtual and mixed reality.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 8th International Symposium on Smart Graphics, SG 2007, held in Kyoto, Japan in June 2007 jointly with the Visual Computing / Graphics and CAD symposium, which takes place in Osaka, Japan. It covers interaction, lifelike characters and affective computing, knowledge-based graphics generation and interaction, and visualization and graphics algorithms.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 12th International Symposium on Smart Graphics, SG 2014, held in Taipei, Taiwan, in August 2014. The 14 full and 4 short papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 26 submissions. They are organized in topical sections named: data visualization; sketching and multi-touch interaction; aesthetics and smart tools for artists; smart tools for 3D contents; and posters.
This provides an in-depth look at the new OpenGL ES (The Standard for Embedded Accelerated 3D Graphics) and shows what these new embedded systems graphics libraries can provide for 3D graphics and games developers. It teaches fundamental 3D mobile graphics programming with standard APIs and covers the basic and advanced application program interfaces behind the major wireless and mobile devices supporting 3D graphics applications.
This is a concise and informal introductory book on the mathematical concepts that underpin computer graphics. The author, John Vince, makes the concepts easy to understand, enabling non-experts to come to terms with computer animation work. The book complements the author´s other works and is written in the same accessible and easy-to-read style. It is also a useful reference book for programmers working in the field of computer graphics, virtual reality, computer animation, as well as students on digital media courses, and even mathematics courses.
John Vince explains a wide range of mathematical techniques and problem-solving strategies associated with computer games, computer animation, virtual reality, CAD, and other areas of computer graphics.Covering all the mathematical techniques required to resolve geometric problems and design computer programs for computer graphic applications, each chapter explores a specific mathematical topic prior to moving forward into the more advanced areas of matrix transforms, 3D curves and surface patches. Problem-solving techniques using vector analysis and geometric algebra are also discussed.All the key areas are covered including: Numbers, Algebra, Trigonometry, Coordinate geometry, Transforms, Vectors, Curves and surfaces, Barycentric coordinates, Analytic geometry.Plus and unusually in a student textbook a chapter on geometric algebra is included.
This is the refereed proceedings of the 24th Computer Graphics International Conference, CGI 2006. The 38 revised full papers and 37 revised short papers presented were carefully reviewed. The papers are organized in topical sections on rendering and texture, efficient modeling and deformation, digital geometry processing, shape matching and shape analysis, face, virtual reality, motion and image, as well as CAGD.
OpenGL Graphics Through Applications is a practical introduction to Computer Graphics with an emphasis on understanding through practice. Throughout the book, theory is followed by implementation using C / C++ and complete programs are provided on the Springer website.A procedural approach has been taken to algorithmic development while taking an object oriented approach when building artefacts from simple objects. The book covers a range of topics including: (1) image processing, (2) artefact construction, (3) introductory animation, (4) texturing, (5) curves surfaces and patterns.Robert Whitrow has taught computing courses from first year undergraduate to postgraduate MSc at a range of different institutions.
