CSC 451 Computer Graphics Algorithms

Explores the algorithmic foundations that underlie a typical computer graphics API. Topics include normals; 2-D and 3-D transformation matrices; projection matrices; clipping, raster scan algorithms; fill algorithms; hidden line and surface algorithms; light, color, and shading algorithms; curve fitting; surface representation. Students will implement various aspects of a computer graphics API. Prerequisites: Completion of CSC 350 with a C or better and completion of MAT 318 with a C or better.
