Interactive Computer Graphics

Computer graphics studies methods for digitally synthesising and manipulating visual content. This course spe cifically concentrates on interactive graphics with an additional focus on 3D graphics as a requirement for many contemporary as well as for novel human-computer interfaces and computer games. The course will cover topics about light and images, lighting models, data representations, mathematical formulations of movements, pro jection as well as texturing methods. Theoretical aspects of the steps involved in ray-tracing and the raster pipe line will be complemented by algorithmical approaches for interactive image syntheses using computer systems. Accompanying software solutions will utilise modern graphics packages and languages like OpenGL, GLSL and/ or DirectX.
