The Computer Image (ACM SIGGRAPH Series) Paperback – July 13, 1998. by Alan Watt (Author), Fabio Policarpo (Author). This book is about the computer image, emphasizing the 'how', but also addressing the 'whys' and 'wherefores' of this creation of the 20th century. Where did it come from? Where is it going? What is its importance? These questions cannot be answered without a knowledge of the technology itself, its past and its evolutionary forces. Fabio Policarpo is a software developer with his own software company Paralelo Computaçao (ww. aralelo. br) in Rio de Janeiro. Series: ACM SIGGRAPH Series.

by Fabio Policarpo and Alan Watt. This book, based on the premise that computer graphics, computer vision, and image processing are merging into a single discipline, is very unique and interesting because it deals with so many different arcane image processing subjects. My main complaint against the book is that there could have been more algorithms and equations shown considering the mathematical nature of all of the subjects mentioned. However, the CD has the executable and source code for many good programs, which somewhat makes up for this.

This paper presents a technique for mapping relief textures onto arbitrary polygonal models in real time. In this approach, the mapping of the relief data is done in tangent space. As a result, it can be applied to polygonal representations of curved surfaces producing correct self-occlusions, interpenetrations, shadows and perpixel lighting effects.
ACM SIGGRAPH is the international Association for Computing Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques based in New York. It was founded in 1969 by Andy van Dam (its direct predecessor, ACM SICGRAPH was founded two years earlier in 1967). ACM SIGGRAPH convenes the annual SIGGRAPH conference, attended by tens of thousands of computer professionals.
Alan Watt, Fabio Policarpo. Using multimedia techniques to illuminate concepts, this book and CD-ROM package provides a comprehensive overview of computer graphics, image processing, and computer vision. Readers will master concepts by manipulating or experimenting with a model and simultaneously viewing the changes on a screen.
