Fundamental algorithms for computer graphics by Rae A Earnshaw( Book )

27 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Algorithms provide the basic foundation for all computational processes. This volume presents algorithms at the foundational level and also at the various levels between this level and the user application. Some of these algorithms are classical and have become well established in the field. This material is therefore a rich source of information and is still relevant and up to date. The basic primitives of computer graphics have remained unchanged: lines, circles, conics, curves and characters. This volume contains reference material in all these areas. The higher levelsof contouring and surface drawing are also well covered. Developments in hardware architectures have continued since the first printing, but the basic principles of hardware/software trade-offs remain valid. This reprint is being published as a Study Edition to make the material more accessible to students and researchers in the field of computer graphics andits applications. The continuing popularity of the original book demonstrates the value and timeliness of its contents
Fractals and chaos by A. J Crilly( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a number of distinctive contributions in the areas of fractals, chaos, and the interrelationship between the two domains. These contributions cover a wide variety of application areas, and this indicates the extent to which fractals and chaotic phenomena are being studied in the various disciplines. It is anticipated that the interdisciplinary nature of the subject will increase, which in turn will yield useful information on the potential (and also limitations in some cases) of fractals and chaos as modeling tools for the investigation of various natural and scientific phenomena. It is hoped that an understanding of fractals and chaos will lead to a common basis for examining the growth, development, organization, and behaviour of complex dynamical systems, many of which make up the natural world of which we are part. It is anticipated that the investigations of fractal structure associated with phase portraits will be an exciting area for future work
State of the art in computer graphics : visualization and modeling by David F Rogers( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 1994 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only state of the art research topics are covered. Topics include: visualization of data; modeling; virtual reality techniques, hardware architectures for visualization. Papers given at this conference comprise this book. Many papers present a background introduction to the topic, followed by discussion of current work in the topic. Thus this book is equally suitable for nonspecialists in a particular area, and for the more experienced researcher in the field
Applications of fractals and chaos : the shape of things by Applications of fractals and chaos( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applications of Fractals and Chaos presents new developments in this rapidlydeveloping subject area. The presentation is more than merely theoretical, it specifically presents particular applications in a wide range of applications areas. Under the oceans, we consider the ways in which sponges and corals grow; we look, too, at the stability of ships on their surfaces. Land itself is modelled and applications to art, medicineand camouflage are presented. Readers should find general interest in the range of areas considered and should also be able to discover methods of value for their own specific areas of interest from studying the structure of related activities

Frontiers of human-centered computing, online communities and virtual environments by Rae A Earnshaw( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents the results of a joint National Science Foundation and European Commission Workshop which was set up to identify the future key strategic research directions in the areas of human-centred interaction, online communities and virtual environments. A research agenda is proposed for each area. There is an urgent need to make interaction more centred around human needs and capabilities, and to consider the human environment in virtual environments and in other contextual information-processing activities. The overall goal is to make users more effective in their information or communication tasks by reducing learning times, speeding up performance, lowering error rates, facilitating retention, and increasing subjective satisfaction. Online communities is an area of rapid and dynamic growth with new kinds of interaction, behaviours, communication, and relationship to the world of users and information. Guidelines for basic user interface design need to be extended to accommodate these new technologies and interfaces to users. Fruitful lines of research investigation in all these areas are set out in this book
