Using visual texture for information display
Colin Ware, William Knight
Pages: 3-20
DOI: 10.1145/200972.200974
Results from vision research are applied to the synthesis of visual texture for the purposes of information display. The literature surveyed suggests that the human visual system processes spatial information by means of parallel arrays of...

Intersecting solids on a massively parallel processor
Michael Karasick, David Strip
Pages: 21-57
DOI: 10.1145/200972.200976
Solid modeling underlies many technologies that are key to modern manufacturing. These range from CAD systems to robot simulators, from finite-element analysis to integrated circuit process modeling. The accuracy, and hence the utility, of these...

Device-directed rendering
Andrew S. Glassner, Kenneth P. Fishkin, David H. Marimont, Maureen C. Stone
Pages: 58-76
DOI: 10.1145/200972.200977
Rendering systems can produce images that include the entire range of visible colors. Imaging hardware, however, can reproduce only a subset of these colors: the device gamut. An image can only be correctly displayed if all of its colors lie...

Adjoint equations and random walks for illumination computation
S. N. Pattanaik, S. P. Mudur
Pages: 77-102
DOI: 10.1145/200972.200985
In this paper we introduce the potential equation that along with the rendering equation forms an adjoint system of equations and provides a mathematical frame work for all known approaches to illumination computation based on geometric optics....
