Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Ray tracing is an technique of computer graphics that creates images by shooting rays via a image-synthesis algorithm that determines the nearest object along a line of sight. Since the 1980s ray tracing has received a great deal of attention from researchers working to make ray tracing more tractable and to include more features. Suffern (information technology, U. of Technology, Sydney) describes how to write a ray tracer step-by-step, starting with design and programming and some essential mathematics and theoretical foundations, moving to such details as antialiasing, sampling techniques, mapping samples to a disk or a hemisphere, perspective viewing and developing a practical viewing system, nonlinear projections, stereoscopy, lights and materials, specular reflection, shadows, ambient occlusion, area lights, ray-object interconnections, affine transformations, transforming objects, regular grids, triangle meshes, mirror reflections, global illumination, simple and realistic transparency, texture mapping, procedural textures and noise-based textures.

Synopsis:

With the increase in computing speed and due to the high quality of the optical effects it achieves, ray tracing is becoming a popular choice for interactive and animated rendering. This book takes readers through the whole process of building a modern ray tracer from scratch in C++. All concepts and processes are explained in detail with the aid of hundreds of diagrams, ray-traced images, and sample code. It is suitable for undergraduate and graduate computer graphics courses and for individual programmers who would like to learn ray tracing.
