Introduction to computer graphics
Introducing: Computer Graphics. Graphics Hardware.
Geometrical Transformations. Viewing in 3D.
Representation of Curves and Surfaces. Solid Modeling.
Achromatic and Colored Light. The Quest for Visual Realism.
Why Realism? If the code had syntax highlighting, then it would have been even better. Chapter 1 covers the basics.
Chapter 3 presents basic raster graphics algorithms for drawing 2D primitives. Chapter 4 describes graphics hardware. Chapter 5 introduces Computer Graphics is about computer graphics and principles.
Chapter 5 introduces geometrical transformations. Chapter 6 discusses viewing in 3D, projections and perspective.

These three chapters are low on mathematics and code. Dialogue design is the title of Chapter 9. Chapter 10 examines user interface software.
Chapter 11 is about representing curves and surfaces.
Finally, we get back to some code and mathematics. Chapter 12 builds on the previous chapter and continues with solid modeling. Sadly, no code in this chapter.
Achromatic and colored light is the subject of chapter This is a fun chapter, however, the lack of color usage in this chapter about color seems paradoxical to me.
In Chapter 14 we embark on a quest for visual realism. Chapter 15 is about visible-surface determination. Chapter 16 discusses illumination and shading. Chapter 17 explores image manipulation and storage.

Chapter 18 discusses advanced raster graphics architecture.Some chapters have no code or mathematics. In addition, the book contains an extensive illustration program, with more than 50 full-color images.
In Chapter 14 we embark on a quest for visual realism. Chapter 11 is about representing curves and surfaces. His current research focuses on 3D user interfaces, virtual worlds, augmented reality, knowledge-based design of graphics and multimedia, animation, visualization, and hypermedia.
Steven K. Feiner''s work has been published in over fifty papers and presented in numerous talks, tutorials, and panels.
