Computer Graphics Through OpenGL: From Theory to Experiments
书籍英文名：Computer Graphics Through OpenGL: From Theory to Experiments
书籍简介：From geometric primitives to animation to 3D modeling to lighting, shading and texturing,Computer Graphics Through OpenGL(R) From Theory to Experimentsis a comprehensive introduction to computer graphics which uses an active learning style to teach key concepts. Equally emphasizing theory and practice, the book provides an understanding not only of the principles of 3D computer graphics, but also the use of the OpenGL(R) Application Programming Interface (API) to code 3D scenes and animation, including games and movies.
The undergraduate core of the book takes the student from zero knowledge of computer graphics to a mastery of the fundamental concepts with the ability to code applications using fourth-generation OpenGL(R). The remaining chapters explore more advanced topics, including the structure of curves and surfaces, applications of projective spaces and transformations and the implementation of graphics pipelines.
