Description

ECS 175: Computer Graphics (Fall 2009, UC Davis). Instructor: Professor Ken Joy.

This course teaches the basic principles of 3-dimensional computer graphics. The focus will be the elementary mathematics techniques for positioning objects in three dimensional space, the geometric optics necessary to determine how light bounces off surfaces, and the ways to utilize a computer system and methods to implement the algorithms and techniques necessary to produce basic 3-dimensional illustrations. Detailed topics will include the following: transformational geometry, positioning of virtual cameras and light sources, hierarchical modeling of complex objects, rendering of complex models, shading algorithms, and methods for rendering and shading curved objects.
