In a very broad sense the historical development of computer graphics can be considered in three phases, each a giant step down the road towards "realistic" computer generated images. The first,

A scan-line hidden surface removal procedure for constructive solid geometry

The visual solid modeling task addressed in this paper provides greatly improved response capabilities, as compared to other systems, by striving to optimize the constructive solid model (CSG) solid model computations specifically for display purposes.

Sorting and the hidden-surface problem

Ten years ago the task of producing hidden-surface pictures by computer seemed untractable, but today the authors can have quite beautiful renderings of solid objects generated by computer in remarkably short times.

A proposal for an FPGA-based graphical pipeline for virtual depth image generation

This paper proposes an FPGA-based virtual depth image generation process, which implements a modified graphical pipeline on the FPGAs, which can provide a fast and energy-efficient implementation of task-specific optimizations.

Comparative study of high performance software rasterization techniques

This paper provides a comparative study and performance analysis of different rasterization algorithms and approaches and proposes an approach that could outperform highly optimized OpenSWR rasterizer for small triangles.

The authors' model learns how to predict realistically looking images from just point cloud data, and shows that it can use this approach to colourize point clouds without the usage of any camera images.

Effective Line Drawing Generation

This thesis develops a novel approach for effectively generating line drawings in the style of suggestive contours that are optimized for human 3D shape perception while retaining the amount of ink to a minimum using a greedy nearest neighbor optimization scheme.

An Accurate Illumination Model of Machined Surface Based on Micro-Image

Verification results show that this proposed model can improve the simulation accuracy significantly and describe the lighting effect of machined surface and will provide a new idea and method for the 3D reconstruction.

This paper focuses on integration of user-shareable 3D view-aligned hand drawn or written annotations into the visualization framework, which allows for real-time sharing of annotations during creation.

Sequential Monte Carlo Instant Radiosity

This work introduces a novel heuristic sampling method that strives to only move as few of the VPLs between frames as possible, which is the first interactive global illumination algorithm that works in complex, highly-occluded scenes, suffers little from temporal flickering, supports moving cameras and light sources, and is output-sensitive in the sense that it places V PLs in locations that matter most to the final result.



Scientific Applications: Computer synthesis of Holograms for 3-D display

The mathematical model and computational techniques of the authors' digital holographic process are discussed, and applications of computer holography are suggested.

An algorithm for producing half-tone computer graphics presentations with shadows and movable light sources

In the years since the introduction of SKETCHPAD an increasing number of graphics systems for line drawing have been developed, and automatic windowing, three-dimensional figures, depth cueing by intensity, and even stereo line drawing are now feasible and in some cases, available in hardware.

An algorithm for hidden line elimination

The algorithm presented causes the elimination of hidden lines in the representation of a perspective view of concave and convex plane-faced objects on the picture plane by taking advantage of a reduced number of concaves and automatically recognizing if only one object with no concave points is considered.

A Hidden Line Algorithm for Halftone Picture Representation

The motivating philosophy of a particular approach is closely examined, and a possible implementation of this approach is described, and the advantages of the scheme are outlined.

The notion of quantitative invisibility and the machine rendering of solids

This paper presents a recently developed scheme for the determination of visibility in a line drawing which enables comparitively high speed calculation and excellent resolution.

Some techniques for shading machine renderings of solids

If techniques for the automatic determination of chiaroscuro with good resolution should prove to be competitive with line drawings, and this is a possibility, machine generated photographs might replace line drawings as the principal mode of graphical communication in engineering and architecture.
