This ebook is the results of the learn within the implementation of polygon-based pix operations on convinced normal function parallel processors; the purpose is to supply a speed-up over sequential implementations of the images operations involved, and the ensuing software program might be considered as a subset of the appliance suites of the correct parallel machines. A literature overview and a quick description of the architectures thought of provide an creation into the sector. so much algorithms are continually offered in an informally outlined extension of the Occam language which include unmarried guideline a number of information move (SIMD) information varieties and operations on them. unique equipment for polygon rendering - together with the operations of filling, hidden floor removing and soft shading - are provided for SIMD architectures just like the DAP and for a dual-paradigm (SIMD-MIMD) computing device developed out of a DAP-like processor array and a transputer community. Polygon clipping algorithms for either transputer and the DAP are defined and contrasted. except the data offered within the publication and the worthy literature survey, the reader may also anticipate to realize an perception into the programming of the appropriate parallel machines.
