This paper describes a system for modeling, animating, previewing and rendering articulated objects. The system has a modeler of objects that consists of joints and segments. The animator interactively positions the articulated object in its stick, control vertex, or rectangular prism representation and previews the motion in real time. Then the data representing the motion and the models is sent to a multicomputer [iPSC/2 Hypercube (Intel)]. The frames are rendered in parallel, exploiting the coherence between successive frames, thus cutting down the rendering time significantly. Our main aim is to make a detailed study on rendering of a sequence of 3D scenes. The results show that due to an inherent correlation between the 3D scenes, an efficient rendering can be achieved. © 1994 Springer-Verlag.

Arkin, E.; Tekinerdoğan, Bedir (MDHPCL, 2013)One of the important problems in parallel computing is the mapping of the parallel algorithm to the parallel computing platform. Hereby, for each parallel node the corresponding code for the parallel nodes must be implemented. ...

Model-driven approach for supporting the mapping of parallel algorithms to parallel computing platforms Arkin, E.; Tekinerdogan, Bedir; Imre, K.M. (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2013)The trend from single processor to parallel computer architectures has increased the importance of parallel computing. To support parallel computing it is important to map parallel algorithms to a computing platform that ...
