The second part of the two-semester „Computer Graphics“ course begins with a brief introduction to signal theory in the

context of aliasing - a phenomenon ubiquitous in computer graphics. Further, a well structured survey of fundamental

problems in 3D computer graphics is given together with their solutions, from the description of a 3D scene to its

realistic rendering. Focus is put on mathematical description of problems and explanation of the corresponding

algorithms using knowledge previously obtained in a variety of subjects available at FNSPE. The algorithm

implementation aspect such as data structures design etc. is also a matter of concern. In the last lecture, a number of

theoretical concepts are demonstrated using Blender, an open-source 3D modeling and rendering software instrument.
