  • Chen, X.; Lienhardt, P. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    In recent years, a lot of work has been done on modelling natural phenomena and simulating the evolution of natural objects. For instance, procedural methods have been developed for simulating corpuscular phenomena and ...
  • Santos, Adelino (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    CoMEdiA is a cooperative hypermedia editing prototype, which enables co-authors to cooperatively produce hypermedia documents. It allows co-authors to communicate their ideas, drafts, guidelines, constraints, and annotations ...
  • Highfield, Julian C.; Bez, Helmut E. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    With the wide availability of general purpose parallel computers, there is a need to reconsider hidden surface elimination (HSE) algorithms with respect to parallel implementation. This paper considers MIMD parallel ...
  • Qin, Kaihuai; Sun, Jiaguang; Wang, Xuefu (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    In this paper, a new method is presented for representing conics precisely using NURBS of degree two. The method requires only four control vertices to represent a full circle using the full circumscribing square-based ...
  • Rappoport, Ari (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    The convex differences tree (CDT) representation of a simple polygon is useful in computer graphics, computer vision, computer aided design and robotics. The root of the tree contains the convex hull of the polygon and ...
  • Day, J. D. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    A new algorithm for clipping lines against rectangular windows is described. It is suitable for computations in both object space (floating point arithmetic) and image space (integer arithmetic). The algorithm is compared ...
  • X: Why Z? 
    Bowen, Jonathan P. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Window management systems are now used extensively for user interfaces to computer systems. In particular, X11 has come to dominate the workstation market as a widely accepted industry standard on many different hardware ...
  • McNeill, M. D. J.; Shah, B. C.; Hebert, M.-P.; Lister, P. F.; Grimsdale, R. L. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Whilst providing images of excellent quality, ray tracing is a computationally intensive task. The first part of this paper compares the speed-up achieved in ray tracing using various space subdivision algorithms and ...
  • Boulic, Ronan; Thalmann, Daniel (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    A new approach for the animation of articulated figures is presented. We propose a system of articulated motion design which offers a full combination of both direct and inverse kinematic control of the joint parameters. ...
  • Gervautz, Michael (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) defines the shape of objects, i.e. the inside and the outside regions of objects, but it does not define the material properties of the space in the interior of objects. The definition is ...
  • Kuhme, Thomas; Schneider-Hufschmidt, Matthias (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    In this paper a brief review of user interface management systems (UIMSs) and their advantages is given. Shortcomings of current UIMSs and open requirements imposed by industrial application areas are outlined. Among the ...
  • Zhou, Tom Z.-Y.; Kubitz, William J. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    The object-oriented view of the user interface presented here is a model of object responsibilities-sharing and cooperation for a typical user interface. The model regards the user interface as a three-layer architecture, ...
  • Hsu, Y. H.; Kuo, Y. S. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    HAGI is an object-oriented graphics system developed on top of the X window system. In addition to providing facilities that structured graphics systems such as GKS usually have, HAGI supports a high- level graphics paradigm ...
  • Kalra, Prem; Mangili, Angelo; Thalmann, Nadia Magnenat; Thalmann, Daniel (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    This paper describes interactive facilities for simulating abstract muscle actions using Rational Free Form Deformations (RFFD). The particular muscle action is simulated as the displacement of the control points of the ...
  • Willis, Philip; Oddy, Robert (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    We describe an accurate method of rendering by scan-conversion of closed regions bounded by NURBs, with particular comments on its application to computer-based 2D animation. It is shown that the method is fast, analytically ...
  • Krokos, M. A.; Slater, M. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    This paper presents a new methodfor providing interactive shape control of interpolating B-splines. The CAD designer can directly interact with geometric entities defined on the B-spline at any interpolated data point- ...
  • Groller, Eduard (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Trying to combine fractal geometry and solid modeling seems to be a contradiction in itself, In this paper a new type of 3D objects is presented that accomplishes this combination in a specific way. Objects with a fractal ...
  • Bouras, A.; Shariat, B.; Vandorpe, D. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    In this paper, we propose a method of complex curves description, based on the use of standard primitives (curve arcs), inscribed in including boxes. This method simplifies the creation steps (curves are not defined with ...
  • Siltanen, Pekka; Woodward, Charles (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Computing an offset curve to a 3D curve involves the basic problem of normal orientation in space. The same thing is encountered when interpolating surfaces with 3D sweep or skinning methods. Different methods for normal ...
  • Kalra, Devendra; Barr, Alan H. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    In this paper, we present a general, systematic and consistent treatment of time and events for computer animation. We first formalize the concepts of events and create a time primitive called an event unit. We then present ...
