Content: 
Computer graphics deals
with the digital synthesis and manipulation of
visual content, typically embedded in a
threedimensional scene. Prominent tasks in computer
graphics are geometry processing, rendering, and
animation. Geometry processing is concerned with
object representations such as surfaces and their
modeling, rendering is concerned with simulating
light transport to get physicallybased
photorealistic images of 3D scenes or applying a
certain style to create nonphotorealistic images,
and animation is concerned with descriptions for
objects that move or deform over time. This is an
introductory course into the concepts and techniques
of 3D (interactive) computer graphics. It includes
mathematical foundations, basic algorithms and
principles, and advanced methods and concepts.
