From geometric primitives to animation to 3D modeling to lighting, shading, and texturing, Computer Graphics Through OpenGL®: From Theory to Experiments, Second Edition presents a comprehensive introduction to computer graphics that uses an active learning style to teach key concepts. Equally emphasizing theory and practice, the book provides an understanding not only of the principles of 3D computer graphics, but also the use of the OpenGL® Application Programming Interface (API) to code 3D scenes and animation, including games and movies.

The undergraduate core of the book is a one-semester sequence taking the student from zero knowledge of computer graphics to a mastery of the fundamental concepts with the ability to code applications using fourth-generation OpenGL. The remaining chapters explore more advanced topics, including the structure of curves and surfaces and the application of projective spaces and transformations.

Review:

"Computer Graphics Through OpenGL provides a great introduction to the basics of computer graphics accompanied with working knowledge on topics ranging from transformations, animation, and lighting to more advanced topics in modeling, all by using the latest from modern OpenGL. This long book can be used either as self-study material or as a textbook in advanced undergraduate courses as well as in introductory graduate courses."
―Bedrich Benes, Associate Professor of Computer Graphics and Faculty Scholar, Purdue University
