Summary of Content:  

This module is part of the Graphics and Vision theme in the School of Computer Science.

The module aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills of mathematical and computational methods for developing computer graphics applications. The module will develop studentsí practical ability in implementing computer graphics algorithms, as well as analytical ability in understanding theories and interpreting example work.

Content wise, the module will strike a balance between advanced mathematical and computational methods for modern computer graphics and practical applications such as games, medical and scientific visualisation and simulation. Contents of the module include deformable object modelling, advanced lighting modelling, medical visualisation and simulation. Modelling techniques include B-Spline Surfaces, Isosurfaces, Level Sets, Marching Cube, and Spherical Harmonics. The module uses Open Source 3D computer graphics and visualisation software.
