    This book introduces fundamental concepts and principles of 2D and 3D graphics and is written for undergraduate and postgraduate students of computer science, graphics, multimedia, and data science. It demonstrates the use of MATLAB® programming for solving problems related to graphics and discusses a variety of visualization tools to generate graphs and plots. The book covers important concepts like transformation, projection, surface generation, parametric representation, curve fitting, interpolation, vector representation, and texture mapping, all of which can be used in a wide variety of educational and research fields. Theoretical concepts are illustrated using a large number of practical examples and programming codes, which can be used to visualize and verify the results.

    “Parkeh offers an elegant expression of the mathematics and MATLAB code for creating 2D and 3D graphics, showing through a succession of steps how increasingly complex graphical objects are created in MATLAB… Relevant MATLAB code is given to mathematically calculate and display the example, with each newly used MATLAB function highlighted, so that by the end of the text a robust graphical vocabulary has been developed. While readers will benefit from some prior exposure to differential calculus and matrices, this book does an excellent job of explaining advanced mathematical concepts.” -- J.
