Algorithm 2 is also known as "accumulation buffer antialiasing". It is the algorithm we have asked you to implement in project #2.
If you want to learn more about this algorithm and some of the neat things it can be used for, read Haeberli, P., Akeley, K., The Accumulation Buffer: Hardware Support for High-Quality Rendering, Computer Graphics (Proc. SIGGRAPH), 24:4, pp. 309-318, 1990.

Press here for some Powerpoint slides giving examples of antialiasing methods (HTML or PPT or PDF).

I didn't cover algorithm #2 in class, and I won't expect you to know it. If you're interested, it's described on pages 822-826 of the textbook.
