Visual Modeling with Rational Rose 2002 and UML

In the house of quite a few years, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) has emerged because the layout medium of selection for constructing large-scale dispensed item purposes. The UML's common semantics and notation for describing item constitution and behaviour make it relatively well matched to this functionality.

The center of rotation is u = 0, 3 . The angle is θ = 45◦ . 3 Every rigid, orientation-preserving, affine transformation can be (uniquely) expressed as the composition of a translation and a rotation. Definition A generalized rotation is a transformation that holds a center point u fixed and rotates all other points around u through a fixed angle θ . This transformation is denoted Rθu . 7. Clearly, a generalized rotation is rigid and orientation-preserving. One way to perform a generalized rotation is first to apply a translation to move the point u to the origin, then rotate around the origin, and then translate the origin back to u.

To use double buffering, you should include the following items in your OpenGL program: First, you need to have a graphics context that supports double buffering. This is obtained by initializing your graphics window by a function call such as glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_RGB | GLUT_DEPTH ); In SimpleAnim, the function updateScene is used to draw a single frame. It works by drawing into the back buffer and at the very end gives the following commands to complete the drawing and swap the front and back buffers: glFlush(); glutSwapBuffers(); It is also necessary to make sure that updateScene is called repeatedly to draw the next frame.

To better appreciate the elegance and simplicity of the depth buffer approach to hidden surfaces, we consider some alternative hidden surface methods. One such method, called the painter’s algorithm, sorts the polygons from most distant to closest and renders them in backto-front order, letting subsequent polygons overwrite earlier ones. The painter’s algorithm is easy but not completely reliable; in fact, it is not always possible to sort polygons consistently according to their distance from the viewer (cf.
