Computer Graphics: An Object-Oriented Approach to the Art and Science
by Cornell Pokorny
Course Notes are available at the OSU bookstore.
When you have completed this course, you will have a solid
understanding of the basic algorithms, mathematics, physics, and
psychology of computer graphics. In addition, you will have practice
modeling and rendering 3-D graphical images and animations.
Knowledge of simple analytic geometry
Ability to program in C++
Familiarity with the X window system at the user level
Written Homework 20%
Students enrolled in CS550 will have additional homework problems
(of a more mathematical nature). They will also be expected to learn
more about curved surface representations.
Written Homework and Programs are due at the beginning of class.
Each student is responsible for his/her own work. The standard
departmental rules for academic dishonesty apply to all
assignments in this course. Collaboration on homeworks and
programs should be limited only to answering questions that can be asked
and answered without using any written medium (e.g., no pencils,
pens, or email).
Turning In Programming Assignments
You will turn in your solutions to programming problems via email.
Please email your solutions to email@example.com. The subject
of your email must be the words PROGRAMn where ``n'' is the
number of the assignment. This permits an automated mail filter
to save your solutions in a separate mail folder. By return email
you will receive a message confirming that your message was received.
