    The term "shaded computer graphics" refers to computer-generated images in which an intensity is calculated for each of a quarter-million or more resolvabe spots which form a picture. Realistic images of this sort were first synthesized about a decade ago,1,2 and subsequent years have seen considerable research and development. Although these efforts were largely stimulated by the need for visual ... View full abstract»

    There is an art to the practice of any science, a point argued cogently by Donald E. Knuth,1author of the series of volumes deliberately titled The Art of Computer Programming. If "science" is knowledge which has been logically arranged and systematically codified, then "art" refers to the use of personal skill, guided by a sense of aesthetics, in applying these organized principles, wh...

    Various methodologies have been used to control the high–and rising–cost of developing software products. Among these, one technique that has proved effective entails constructing programs from small, well-defined modules. This technique, called modular programming, can be used in any programming language; however, without language support to enforce module boundaries, errors often occ... View full abstract»
