  • The Fractal Nature of an Ecological Model 

    Bennan, Wang; Yin, Shi (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    With the help of computer graphics, the chaotic behaviour of an ecological model in the complex plane has been investigated. Convergence maps that show multi-fractal characteristics (science) and beautiful patterns (art) ...
  • Geometric and Group-theoretic Methods for Computer Graphic Studies of Islamic Symmetric Patterns 

    Abas, S. J.; Salman, A. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Over the last several years the authors have used computer graphics to generate, study and analyze more than 300 Islamic geometrical repeat patterns. These patterns offer a rich source for exploitation by artists and are ...
  • Ray Tracing and Graphics Standards 

    Urban, B.; Haberstroh, T. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Existing standards for three-dimensional graphic representations are unable to produce any realistically shaded images (except PHIGS PLUS, which provides discrete shading only). Ray Tracing or Radiosity are not taken into ...
  • A Computer Model For Pinscreen Simulation: A New Animation Paradigm 

    Lopes, Pedro Faria; Gomes, Mario Rui (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    Actual computer image and motion synthesis paradigms are presented in order to introduce a new computer animation paradigm that simulates the traditional pinscreen animation technique. Pinscreen is a very particular and ...
  • A Graphic Programming Environment Based on KADMOS 

    Dulli, Susi; Milanese, Vitaliano (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    In this paper the design and development of a graphic programming system to be relied on KA?MO? are described. The system architecture upresented together with the functionality of construction and manipulation of the ...
  • Formal Specification in the Revision of GKS: An Illustrative Example 

    Duce, D.A.; Damnjanovic, L.B. (Blackwell Science Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1992)
    The first ISO/IEC standard for computer graphics, the Graphical Kernel System (GKS) was published in August 1985. In accordance with ISO/IEC procedures, GKS is now being reviewed and revised. This paper describes how formal ...
