  • Modelling and Rendering Graphics Scenes Composed of Multiple Volumetric Datasets 

    Leu, Adrian; Chen, Min (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
    This paper presents a method for modelling graphics scenes consisting of multiple volumetric objects. A two-level hierarchical representation is employed, which enables the reduction of the overall storage consumption as ...
  • Modeling and Rendering Escher-Like Impossible Scenes 

    Savransky, Guillermo; Dimerman, Dan; Gotsman, Craig (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Inspired by the drawings of "impossible" objects by artists such as M.C. Escher, we describe a mathematical theory which captures some of the underlying principles of their work. Using this theory, we show how impossible ...
  • Generic Geometric Programming in the Computational Geometry Algorithms Library 

    Veltkamp, Remco C. (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
    This paper describes a number of design issues and programming paradigms that affect the development of Cgal, the computational geometry algorithms library. Genericity of the library is achieved by concepts such as templates, ...
  • Fast Ray Tracing of Implicit Surfaces 

    Sherstyuk, Andrei (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
    A ray-tracing algorithm is described for rendering implicit surfaces formed with C1-continuous bounded functions f(x, y, z). This class of functions includes such popular implicit models as blobby molecules, metaballs, ...
  • Extending the CSG Tree. Warping, Blending and Boolean Operations in an Implicit Surface Modeling System 

    Wyvill, Brian; Guy, Andrew; Galin, Eric (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Automatic blending has characterized the major advantage of implicit surface modeling systems. Recently, the introduction of deformations based on space warping and Boolean operations between primitives has increased the ...
  • Multiresolution Curve and Surface Representation: Reversing Subdivision Rules by Least-Squares Data Fitting 

    Samavati, Faramarz F.; Bartels, Richard H. (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
    This work explores how three techniques for defining and representing curves and surfaces can be related efficiently. The techniques are subdivision, least-squares data fitting, and wavelets. We show how least-squares data ...
  • Metis - An Object-Oriented Toolkit for Constructing Virtual Reality Applications 

    Turner, Russell; Li, Song; Gobbetti, Enrico (Blackwell Publishers Ltd and the Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Virtual reality systems provide realistic look and feel by seamlessly integrating three-dimensional input and output devices. One software architecture approach to constructing such systems is to distribute the application ...
