The Java 3D API, a thrilling new a part of the JavaMedia suite of APIs, allows the production of 3-dimensional photos functions and Internet-based 3D applets. It provides builders high-level constructs for growing and manipulating 3D geometry and for construction the constructions utilized in rendering that geometry. With Java 3D, builders can successfully outline and render very huge digital worlds. additionally, in keeping with Java's "write as soon as, run at any place" imaginative and prescient, purposes written utilizing Java 3D can run on quite a lot of systems and structures and are tailored to be used on the net. This e-book represents the definitive Java 3D API specification, delivering authoritative and specified descriptions of every component to the API. It bargains an informative evaluate of Java 3D, entire directions for "scene graph" definition and development, and a close description of the Java 3D View version, an cutting edge version permitting purposes to be displayed on a big selection of units. The e-book additionally covers: enter units, resembling six-degrees-of-freedom trackers; deciding on mechanisms; behaviors and interpolators for animating items; and audio features. The Java 3D Execution and Rendering version is defined extensive, together with the instant, retained, and compiled-retained modes. finished and definitive, this ebook is a necessary reference for any Java programmer attracted to coming into the intriguing global of three-d net functions. 0201325764B04062001

Spannende Einblicke in ein faszinierendes Forschungsgebiet
Schalenmuster sind ein Bilderbuch der Natur. Sie helfen bei der Untersuchung dynamischer Systeme und biologischer Musterbildung, denn Schnecken zeichnen jeden Schritt ihres Schalenbaus auf.
Hans Meinhardt hat diese Entstehungsprotokolle entschlüsselt und in verblüffend naturgetreuen Computer-Simulationen nachgezeichnet.
Am Beispiel der Muster auf den Schalen tropischer Meeresschnecken zeigt er die Gesetzmäßigkeiten auf, nach denen sich die Strukturbildung vollzieht.
Das großformatige Buch überzeugt durch Fachkompetenz und Ästhetik.
Es bietet Ihnen
o verständliche Einblicke in erstaunliche wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse
o großartige Farbaufnahmen der Original-Schalen und Computer-Modelle
o aussagekräftige Computer-Simulationen und Graphiken
o ausführliche Kommentare und Gleichungen
o DOS-Diskette für Ihre eigenen Experimente
Sichern Sie sich dieses anregende Natur-Lehrbuch, das wissenschaftlich interessierte Fachleser ebenso begeistern wird wie kreative Computer-Anwender.
Fachkommentare zur englischen Ausgabe:
"Hans Meinhardt hat die bemerkenswerte Leistung vollbracht, ein Buch zu schreiben, das als Bildband wertvoll ist und dennoch eine Fülle von partiellen Differentialgleichungen bietet. Es beinhaltet eine gute Einführung in das Gebiet der dynamischen Systeme und ist obendrein noch lesbar und wunderschön." (Nature)
"Das Buch bietet sich an als wunderbares Geschenk sowohl für jeden, der daran interessiert ist, wie ein mathematisches Modell entworfen und realisiert wird, als auch für den, der sich für den Gegenstand selbst begeistert." (Science)

Riding at the good fortune of 3D cinema blockbusters and advances in stereoscopic show expertise, 3D video functions have accrued momentum in recent times. 3D-TV method with Depth-Image-Based Rendering: Architectures, strategies and Challenges surveys depth-image-based 3D-TV structures, that are anticipated to be placed into purposes within the close to destiny. Depth-image-based rendering (DIBR) considerably complements the 3D visible event in comparison to stereoscopic platforms presently in use. DIBR thoughts give the chance to generate extra viewpoints utilizing 3D warping innovations to regulate the perceived intensity of stereoscopic video clips and supply for auto-stereoscopic monitors that don't require glasses for viewing the 3D photo.
The fabric contains a technical evaluate and literature survey of parts and whole structures, options for technical matters, and implementation of prototypes. The e-book is geared up into 4 sections: approach assessment, content material iteration, information Compression and Transmission, and 3D Visualization and caliber evaluation. This e-book will gain researchers, builders, engineers, and innovators, in addition to complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars operating in proper areas.
