  • Computer Art from Numerical Methods 

    Szyszkowicz, Mieczyslaw (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1991)
    Zero-finding methods, Euler s method and the numerical algorithms elaborated as package subroutines are studied by using a computer graphics technique. The patterns obtained show chaotic behaviour (science) and beauty of ...
  • Cartographic Algorithms: Problems of Implementation and Evaluation and the Impact of Digitising Errors 

    Visvalingam, M.; Whyatt, J.D. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1991)
    Cartographic generalisation remains one of the outstanding challenges in digital cartography and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). It is generally assumed that computerisation will lead to the removal of spurious ...
  • Fat curves 

    Yao, C.; Rokne, J. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1991)
    Fat curves in two-dimensional Euclidean space are discussed. Previous work on fat curves is reviewed and a new definition is given for a fat curve having a smooth axis. The joining of two fat curves is discussed and a ...
  • At Last an ISO C Binding of GKS 

    Bakker, Miente (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1991)
    The C4 bindings of GKS1 and other semantic computer graphics standards like GKS-3D2 and PHIGS3 are long overdue. While GKS was completed in 1985 and GKS-3D2 (and PHIGS3) became an international standard in 1988, none of ...
  • The GKS Input Model in Manifold 

    Soede, Dirk; Arbab, Farhad; Herman, Ivan; Ten Hagen, Paul J. W. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1991)
    This paper describes the specification of the GKS input model in Manifold. The aim of the work reported in this paper was two-fold: first, to review the communication patterns implied by the GKS input model, and second, ...
  • Search for the Intersection Polygon of any Two Polygons: Application to the Garment Industry 

    Mangen, Alain; Lasudry, Nadine (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1991)
    One of the biggest problems usually encountered by the clothes manufacturer consists of placing various pattern parts on a rectangular area in such a way that the waste of material between the pieces is minimized.To bring ...
