Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The authors know the subject, and the graphics they produce are quite dramatic. Source code for numerous graphics programs is presented (no cost for academic uses). Eight pages of color plates show how interesting and beautiful color graphics can be. Graduate level mathematics is required for some parts of the book. Includes a bibliography and an index of functions and methods. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
