Book Description

Feb. 15 2012 1447123395 978-1447123392 2012
This book brings together several advanced topics in computer graphics that are important in the areas of game development, three-dimensional animation and real-time rendering. The book is designed for final-year undergraduate or first-year graduate students, who are already familiar with the basic concepts in computer graphics and programming. It aims to provide a good foundation of advanced methods such as skeletal animation, quaternions, mesh processing and collision detection. These and other methods covered in the book are fundamental to the development of algorithms used in commercial applications as well as research.

Product Description

Review

From the reviews:

“This book provides an in-depth analysis of a selection of topics that are important in the areas of character animation and game development. … book aims to provide a comprehensive treatment of theoretical concepts and associated methods related to the following areas: articulated character animation, curve and surface design, mesh processing and collision detection. … The book is presented in an accessible fashion full of images and examples. … The topics discussed in this book are commonly covered in graduate or advanced undergraduate graphics courses.” (Agnieszka Lisowska, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1243, 2012)

From the Back Cover

Advanced Methods in Computer Graphicsprovides an in-depth analysis of a selection of topics that are important in the areas of character animation and game development. The discussion of a wide range of algorithms and their implementation aspects presented in the book will serve as a useful reference for researchers and practitioners in computer graphics. Students will find the book to be a valuable resource in their study of advanced graphics concepts.

The key topics covered in the book are hierarchical modelling and transformations using scene graphs, skeletal animation, forward and inverse kinematics solutions, quaternion based rotation interpolation, mesh processing and collision detection algorithms. The book also gives a thorough overview of splines, interpolation curves, and surface design methods.

Features:

  • Comprehensive coverage of a large collection of methods used in animation and game programming.
  • Detailed description of the theoretical aspects of algorithms, complemented by examples, figures and pseudo-codes.
  • Each chapter accompanied by a set of demonstration programs that clearly show the implementation and working of key algorithms.
  • The C++ source code of all the examples, demos and classes for each chapter can be downloaded from the publisher's website, http://extras.springer.com/978-1-4471-2339-2.
