Description

Computer Graphics with OpenGL, 4/e is appropriate for junior-to graduate-level courses in computer graphics.Assuming no background in computer graphics, this junior-to graduate-level course presents basic principles for the design, use, and understanding of computer graphics systems and applications. The authors, authorities in their field, offer an integrated approach to two-dimensional and three-dimensional graphics topics. A comprehensive explanation of the popular OpenGL programming package, along with C++ programming examples illustrates applications of the various functions in the OpenGL basic library and the related GLU and GLUT packages.

Review quote

"I think the authors [Hearn/Baker] presented the materials in one of the best ways. They are very clear so that the students can understand...especially, adding the OpenGL example codes help the students a lot." - Jong Kwan Lee, Bowling Green University"A strong suit of this book [Hearn/Baker] is its sound integration of graphics foundations, algorithms, technology, libraries, and programming. The book provides a good overview of the key areas of graphics that a university student would want to know in a first course and beyond. The text can be a valuable reference after the course as it provides "room to grow." - Timothy Newman, University of Alabama - Huntsville"The features stressed should be the good explanation of concepts with sound mathematical concepts, great illustrations to explain each concept and the code snippets that actually show an implementation of the OpenGL function being explained." - Amar Raheja, California State Polytechnic University"The clarity of presentation, completeness of concept delivery and illustration, the book versatility and usability as professional reference and course textbook are a few of the features that differentiates this text from others." - Iren Valova, University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth"I think it [Hearn/Baker] has excellent coverage of material, discusses concepts at a reachable level, and doesn't muddle the learning with lofty messages, concepts, or complexity." - Dana Wortman, University of Colorado - Colorado Springs
