CS 448 - Topics in Computer Graphics
Mathematical Methods for Computer Graphics
Lecture notes should be typeset with LaTeX, using the following template:
If you are not familiar with LaTeX,
a good source of information are the Web pages of the TeX Users Group .
- lect00.tex - Start with this file,
and add your notes to it.
- handout.cls - A support file
needed by lect00.tex.
The most common way to include drawings in your text is to
produce Encapsulated Postscript (EPS) files using a drawing
program. The programs available include:
EPS files are included in LaTeX documents using
epsfig package included in most LaTeX
- xfig (or idraw) on most UNIX systems,
- showcase on SGI systems,
- MacDraw on most Macs,
- Adobe Illustrator on Mac's
and PC's (including the Mac in the graphics lab).
Submitting your notes
Please try to complete the notes within one week after the
lecture. This includes getting feedback from the designated
student reviewer, and making any necessary corrections. When
both of you are satisfied, send the notes to the appropriate
The lecturer might request further changes to the notes. The
final version of the notes will be distributed to the class, and
also made available on the course web page (with your name on it).
- If you have an account on the graphics machines, you can
just a note pointing us to the appropriate directory.
- Otherwise, send us the directory with your files via e-mail.
You can do this with the following command (minor modifications
may be necessary for UNIX systems other then IRIX):
tar cvfz - * | uuencode notes#.tar.gz | Mail -s "lecture#"
Remember to remove .dvi, .log, .blg
and .aux files as well as the final Postscript output
before sending us the files, but don't forget to include the
Postscript files for the figures.
To give you an idea of the style of the notes that we expect,
here are two examples of scribed lectures from another course:
