They also offer a large number of examples of parallel algorithms written in the coarray model and include exercises with solutions. A supplementary website offers Fortran code samples for download.

This volume details the computational aspects of stochastic analysis within the field of structural mechanics. It starts with a few motivating examples that demonstrate the various random effects within the context of simple structural analysis models. It then reviews fundamental concepts from continuum mechanics and puts them in the perspective of modern numerical tools, such as the finite element method. More advanced topics are developed step by step while gradually increasing the complexity of the structural and probabilistic analyses. The material is suitable for graduate students and for structural analysts wishing to explore the potential benefits of stochastic analysis.

Graphics Shaders Theory and Practice

Interactive Data Visualization

Mike Bailey Steve Cunningham

Foundations, Techniques, and Applications

Programmable graphics shaders, programs that can be downloaded to a graphics processor (GPU) to carry out operations outside the fixed-function pipeline of earlier standards, have become a key feature of computer graphics. This book is designed to open computer graphics shader programming to the student, whether in a traditional class or on their own. It is intended to complement texts based on fixed-function graphics APIs, specifically OpenGL. It introduces shader programming in general, and specifically the GLSL shader language. It also introduces a flexible, easy-to-use tool, glman, that helps readers develop, test, and tune shaders outside an application that would use them.

This book covers the full spectrum of the field, including mathematical and analytical aspects. Sample programs are provided as starting points for building one’s own visualization tools. Numerous data sets have been made available that highlight different application areas and allow readers to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of different visualization methods. Exercises, programming projects, and related readings are given for each chapter. The book concludes with an examination of several existing visualization systems and projections on the future of the field.

Realistic Image Synthesis Using Photon Mapping

Using D* in Graphics and Game Programming

Henrik Wann Jensen

Brian Guenter Sung-Hee Lee

Photon mapping, an extension of ray tracing, makes it possible to efficiently simulate global illumination in complex scenes. Photon mapping can simulate caustics (focused light, like shimmering waves at the bottom of a swimming pool), diffuse inter-reflections (e.g., the “bleeding” of colored light from a red wall onto a white floor, giving the floor a reddish tint), and participating media (such as clouds or smoke). This book is a practical guide to photon mapping; it provides the theory and the practical insight necessary to implement photon mapping and simulate all types of direct and indirect illumination efficiently.

This book explains how to use the new symbolic differentiation system D* for applications in computer games and engineering simulation. The authors describe how to create procedural 3D geometric models, link them together to form multibody physical systems, and simulate and display their physical behavior in real time. The symbolic differentiation capabilities of D* can be used in a wide variety of technical applications including computer graphics, engineering, and mechanical simulation. Two Lagrangian physics simulations and procedural 3D geometric modeling are developed in great detail.

Concept, Theory, and Practice

The World According to Video Games

Rudolf Kremers

Deborah Todd

This book is the first to use a conceptual and theoretical foundation to build such a set of practical tools and techniques. It is tied to no particular technology or genre, so it will be a useful reference for many years to come. Kremers covers many concepts universal to level design, such as interactivity, world building, immersion, sensory perception, pace, and more, and he shows how to apply these concepts in practical ways, with many examples from real games.

Deborah Todd has interviewed game-industry experts, and the result is a list of the 100 most important, influential, and groundbreaking video games. More than simply listing each of these games, she talks about what innovations each game brought and why each deserves a place on this definitive list. For anyone wanting to understand the history of video games and both the cultural and technological forces that have driven it and where it is heading, this is an invaluable resource.

Mathematics Education and Video Games Keith Devlin Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, USA

Stanford mathematician and NPR Math Guy Keith Devlin explains why video games are the ideal medium to teach middle-school math. Devlin spent five years as a mathematical advisor on a project to develop an MMO game that would teach mathematics and be compelling enough that children would actually want to play. He worked with distinguished educators and game designers, and, during that time, the team learned how to design games that do more than entice children to practice math. Aimed at teachers, education researchers, and game developers, this work describes exactly what is involved in designing and producing video games that foster innovative mathematical thinking skills.

Series: Human Factors and Ergonomics

This volume is concerned with digital human modeling. The utility of this area of research is to aid the design of systems that are benefitted from reducing the need for physical prototyping and incorporating ergonomics and human factors earlier in design processes. Digital human models are representations of some aspects of a human that can be inserted into simulations or virtual environments to facilitate prediction of safety, satisfaction, usability and performance. These representations may consider the physical, physiological, cognitive, behavioral, or emotional aspects. They are typically represented by some visualization with the math and science computed in the background.

Unlike previous publications in usability, which have predominantly concentrated on how to present information, this book focuses on what information should be presented and on information appliances for different cultures. It provides operational tools to effectively prepare the content in a manner that allows users to make good decisions regarding the purchase of goods and services and to obtain information on items of interest. A cross-cultural comparison and fundamental review of the theory, the book not only answers the question of what information needs to be presented for effective decision making but also addresses the impact of culture on content usability.

This book presents a logo recognition system based on line pattern features. To achieve the desired accuracy and efficiency, the system employs a conceptually simple three-stage hierarchy: polygonal approximation, indexing, and matching. In the first stage, raw logos are transformed into normalized line segment maps. In the second stage, effective line pattern features are used to index the database in order to generate a moderate number of likely models. The third stage, an improved line segment Hausdorff distance (LHD) measure, screens and generates the best matches.

Written in an easily-accessible style, this book provides the ideal blend of theory and practical, applicable knowledge. It covers neural networks, graphical models, reinforcement learning, evolutionary algorithms, dimensionality reduction methods, and the important area of optimization. It treads the fine line between adequate academic rigor and overwhelming students with equations and mathematical concepts. The author includes examples based on widely available datasets and practical and theoretical problems to test understanding and application of the material. The book describes algorithms with code examples backed up by a website that provides working implementations in Python.

Testing Complex and Embedded Systems Kim H. Pries Stonebridge Electronics North America, El Paso, Texas

Jon M. Quigley Using combinatorial approaches, this book aims to motivate testers and testing organizations to perform meaningful testing. The text details planning activities prior to testing, how to scope the work, and how to achieve a successful conclusion. Rather than presenting the entire continuum of testing for a particular product or design attribute, this volume focuses on boundary conditions. The authors provide various techniques that can be used to streamline testing and help identify problems before they occur, including turbocharge testing methods from Six Sigma. Coverage includes testing, simulation, and emulation. Catalog no. K11134, ISBN: 978-1-4398-2140-4 December 2010, 6-1/8 x 9-1/4, 319 pp. Suggested Price: $89.95 / £57.99 Available in eBook
