CS 348C Schedule

CS 348C - Modeling in Computer Graphics
Fall quarter, 1995
Coordinator: Apostolos Lerios

Lectures and presentations

Unless otherwise stated, the course coordinator lectures every Tuesday on geometric modeling. On Thursdays, students present papers on specific topics chosen from the topics list.

The overheads and notes used by the coordinator are available in gzip-compressed and uncompressed PostScript, in both one-overhead-per-page and four-per-page formats; the psnup utility, available in many platforms, may be used to make other combinations of multiple overheads on a single page.

The overheads used by the guest lecturer are available as on-line scanned images.
