Manuel Menezes de Oliveira Neto Relief Texture Mapping (Under the supervision of Professor Gary Bishop) This dissertation presents an extension to texture mapping that supports the representation of 3-D surface details and view motion parallax. The results are correct for viewpoints that are static or moving, far away or nearby. In this approach, a relief(More)
This paper introduces the architecture and initial algorithms for Pixel-planes 5, a heterogeneous multi-computer designed both for high-speed polygon and sphere rendering (1M Phong-shaded triangles/second) and for supporting algorithm and application research in interactive 3D graphics. Techniques are described for volume rendering at multiple frames per(More)
The energy consumption of a graphics processing unit (GPU) is an important factor in its design, whether for a server, desktop, or mobile device. Mobile products, such as smart phones, tablets, and laptop computers, rely on batteries to function; the less the demand for power is on these batteries, the longer they will last before needing to be recharged.(More)
Daniel G. Aliaga. Automatically Reducing and Bounding Geometric Complexity by Using Images. (Under the direction of Anselmo A. Lastra) Large and complex 3D models are required for computer-aided design, architectural visualizations, flight simulation, and many types of virtual environments. Often, it is not possible to render all the geometry of these(More)
System design for pixel-parallel image processing. MOSAID has hosted and supported this project for several years, and their staff have been generous in explaining the real-world constraints of DRAM to us. At various times Frank in particular have offered insights that have shaped the project. Nortel has contributed financially and in fabrication for(More)
