       perception. It focuses on how computer graphics images are
       generated, rather than solely on the organization of the 
       visual system itself; therefore, the text provides a more 
       direct tie between image generation and the resulting 
       perceptual phenomena.|bThis book provides an introduction 
       to human visual perception suitable for readers studying
