Content Description: (also see the Calendar)
This course builds upon the fundamental principles covered in CMPT 361 to introduce students to advance topics in computer graphics. Particular emphasis is on image synthesis, lighting and rendering.
undergrads: CMPT 361 and MACM 201, MACM 316. Students with credit for CMPT 451 may not take CMPT 461 for further credit.
grads: none (if you have taken 461 already then don't take this course!)
(Why all this math? Perhaps read the Communications of the ACM September 2003 issue - pages 36-55)
