Graduate-level introduction to computer graphics algorithms,
programming methods, and applications. The primary focus is on the
fundamentals of two- and three-dimensional raster graphics:
scan-conversion, clipping, geometric transformations, and camera
modeling. Basic concepts in computational geometry, computer-human
interfaces, animation, and visual realism are also introduced.
Graphics techniques are taught in a device independent manner.
Runs in parallel with the undergraduate introduction to graphics
class, CS480. In addition to
attending CS480 lectures and doing the
programming projects, graduate students get together for one hour a
week to discuss recent journal/conference papers from the field.
For a list of readings, see the CS680 reading schedule.

Quiz: Thursday Feb 27, in class.
Final: Thursday April 29, in class.
Students enrolled in CS680 will be required to take the CS480
mid-term quiz and final. There will be additional questions on the tests that
are to be answered by graduate students.
Late assignments will be levied a late penalty of 10% per day, up to 3 days
late. After that, no credit will be given.
Grading: (subject to change)
CS480 Programming projects 50%
Section reading commentary 10%
Collaboration / Academic Honesty:
It is reasonable to discuss with others possible general approaches to
problems. It is unreasonable to work together on a detailed solution,
to copy a solution, or to give away a solution. If your common
discussion can be detected by looking at the solutions, then there is
too much collaboration. Such instances of academic dishonesty will
result in a course grade of F or expulsion from Boston University.
