Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. The creation of ever more realistic 3-D images is central to the development of computer graphics. The ray tracing technique has become one of the most popular and powerful means by which photo-realistic images can now be created. The simplicity, elegance and ease of implementation makes ray tracing an essential part of understanding and exploiting state-of-the-art compute The creation of ever more realistic 3-D images is central to the development of computer graphics.
The simplicity, elegance and ease of implementation makes ray tracing an essential part of understanding and exploiting state-of-the-art computer graphics.
An Introduction to Ray Tracing develops from fundamental principles to advanced applications, providing “how-to” procedures as well as a detailed understanding of the scientific foundations of ray tracing.
It is also richly illustrated with four-color and black-and-white plates. This is a book which will be welcomed by all concerned with modern computer graphics, image processing, and computer-aided design.
Provides practical “how-to” information Contains high quality color plates of images created using ray tracing techniques Progresses from a basic understanding to the advanced science and application of ray tracing Hardcoverpages. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Oct 30, Koen Crolla rated it liked it Shelves: Two things is a long time ago, but I suppose introdction fundamentals of ray tracing don’t really change. Two things kept me from enjoying this book as much as I had hoped to, though: Ray tgacing is boring.
The former is probably the more reasonable charge.
Though the papers have apparently been edited somewhat from their original forms, they’re glassnrr very clearly separate entities, and if you approach the book hoping to find a traditional textbook that explains the basic concepts of ray tracing and walks you through writing your own in incremental, logically consecutive steps, you’re going to be disappointed. The latter is personal opinion, and I won’t lower my rating for it.
I just feel that when it comes to 3D graphics, Wolfenstein 3D-style ray casting probably represents the optimal balance between quality of results and fiddliness of implementation.
Still, that’s just me, and if you enjoy navel-gazing algebraic solutions to boring geometrical problems, or just want to experience a piece of SIGGRAPH history, you may find An Introduction to Ray Tracing incredibly interesting.
