Computer Graphics with OpenGLThe basic principles for the design, use, and understanding of computergraphics systems and applications are presented in this third edition, along with OpenGL programming examples. Both software and hardware components of graphics systems are thoroughly discussed, and an integrated approach is used to relate twodimensional and threedimensional graphics topics. Assuming no background in computer graphics, the authors build on fundamental concepts to show how to create pictures ranging from simple line drawings to highly complex photorealistic scenes.
