Texture mapping is a popular rendering technique used in three-dimensional computer graphics. It allows textures represented as digital images to be mapped across surfaces in a 3D scene, providing a simple method for adding realistic detail to computer generated imagery. The process of transforming a discrete 2D texture image onto a 3D surface and subsequently onto the 2D projection window (the screen) is called image resampling. Deformations applied to the texture image during this process… 
Filtering volumetric data
The display of volumetric data is a problem of increasing importance. The display of this data is being studied in texture mapping and volume rendering applications. The goal of texture mapping is to
A cost-effective VLSI architecture for anisotropic texture filtering in limited memory bandwidth
TLDR
The method proposes an exact footprint-shape approximation with edge functions for generating weights for real-time filtering of the restricted texels loaded from memory, and the quality of rendered images is superior to other anisotropic filtering methods with the same restricted number of texels.
A cost-effective VLSI architecture for anisotropic texture filtering in limited memory bandwidth
Texture mapping is one of the techniques that express realism in three-dimensional (3-D) graphics. To produce high-quality images, various anisotropic filtering methods have been proposed for texture
Feline: fast elliptical lines for anisotropic texture mapping
TLDR
This paper describes a new texture filtering technique called Feline, which uses an underlying space-invariant (isotropic) filter with mipmapped data, and so can be built on top of an existing trilinear filtering engine.

Hardware accelerated computer graphics algorithms
TLDR
This work looks at areas of current interest within the graphics community such as Texture Filtering, Bump Mapping and Depth of Field simulation, and a new hardware implementation of a texture filtering technique, aimed at consumer level hardware.
Texture Resampling while Ray-Tracing: Approximating the Convolution Region Using Caching.
TLDR
A cache-based approach to handling the difficult problem of performing visually acceptable texture resampling/filtering while ray-tracing by introducing the Convolution Mask Approximation Module (CMAM), which locally approximates the convolution region in the texture space as a set of overlapping texture triangles.
Vertex-based anisotropic texturing
TLDR
A new algorithm is presented that enables anisotropic texturing on any current MIP map graphics hardware supporting MIP level biasing, available in OpenGL 1.2 or through the GL_EXT_texture_lod_bias or GL_SGIX_texture-lod-bias OpenGL extensions.

TLDR
Several textured images are presented, produced by the texture tile technique, which show the realistic effect that is added by texture tiles.
Texture and reflection in computer generated images
TLDR
Extensions of this algorithm in the areas of texture simulation and lighting models are described, including extensions of the parametrization of a patch which defines a coordinate system which is used as a key for mapping patterns onto the surface.

TLDR
A system for real-time texture mapping was constructed which enables interactive manipulation of texture-mapped free-form surfaces and various application software has been developed taking advantage of this ability.

TLDR
This paper advances a “pyramidal parametric” prefiltering and sampling geometry which minimizes aliasing effects and assures continuity within and between target images.

TLDR
Instead of calculating the lighting based on the position of the polygon, lights, and eye, the lights and eye can be transformed to a corresponding position for a unit square which the authors can consider to be a canonical polygon.

TLDR
This work presents a technique that permits constant-time filtering for space-variant kernels, and allows the use of arbitrary filters, and is useful to explore interesting mappings and special filtering techniques.
Survey of Texture Mapping
TLDR
The fundamentals of texture mapping are surveyed, which can be spilt into two topics: the geometric mapping that warps a texture onto a surface, and the filtering necessary to avoid aliasing.

This algorithm avoids the computational limitations of other methods because this “artificial” approach does not require complex mappings from a defined texture space to the transformed image to be rendered.
Synthetic texturing using digital filters
Aliasing artifacts are eliminated from computer generated images of textured polygons by equivalently filtering both the texture and the edges of the polygons. Different filters can be easily
