Techniques for rendering solid objects on a processor farm
Authors: Dew, Peter M., Holliman, Nick, Morris, David, Pennington, Alan de
Collaborative research by Leeds University and the IBM UK Scientific Centre has resulted in an experimental parallel solid modeller called MISTRAL, based on the Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) representation of solid objects. This paper gives an overview of the CSG rendering algorithms implemented in MISTRAL, a description of the MISTRAL modeller itself, and describes how several different kinds of parallelism may be exploited using a processor farm. It concludes by discussing some of the issues involved in writing complex parallel programs in OCCAM2.
