COSC 87 Rendering Algorithms

This course is designed for graduate and upper-level undergraduate students interested in obtaining an in-depth understanding of physically based rendering. Students will learn about the principles of how light interacts with a scene and how to translate the associated image formation problem into efficient rendering algorithms. Since this is an upper-level course, a focus is placed on state-of-the-art techniques and recent trends in research. By the end of the quarter, students will understand, and know how to      im­plement, many of the core algorithms used for rendering visual effects and 3D animated films.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
