The material presented in this book originates from the first Eurographics Workshop on Graphics Hardware, held in Lisbon, Portugal, in August 1986. Leading experts in the field present the state of their ongoing graphics hardware projects and give their individual views of future developments. The final versions of the contributions are written in the light of in-depth discussions at the workshop. The book starts a series of EurographicSeminars volumes on the state-of-the-art of graphics hardware. This volume presents a unique collection of material which covers the following topics: workstation architectures, traffic simulators, hardware support for geometric modeling, ray-tracing. It therefore will be of interest to all computer graphics professionals wishing to gain a deeper knowledge of graphics hardware.
