A great many varied and interesting visual effects can be achieved with computer graphics, for which a fundamental understanding of the underlying mathematical concepts – and a knowledge of how they can be implemented in a particular programming language – is essential.
Computer Graphics for Java Programmers, 2nd edition covers elementary concepts in creating and manipulating 2D and 3D graphical objects, covering topics from classic graphics algorithms to perspective drawings and hidden-line elimination.
Completely revised and updated throughout, the second edition of this highly popular textbook contains a host of ready-to-run-programs and worked examples, illuminating general principles and geometric techniques. Ideal for classroom use or self-study, it provides a perfect foundation for programming computer graphics using Java.

Reinforcing concepts with useful and simple examples, this book explores both elementary and advance topics--from producing simple graphical objects to using applied geometry to create vectors and polygons and finally to rotating and transforming these graphical objects. It provides both classic graphics algorithms as well as particular effects such as perspective drawings. Ready-to-run programs and worked examples illuminate the principles and techniques for creating 2d and 3d objects.About the Author:
