Book summary

Computer visualization is used to make television commercials, manipulate art images, enhance information from satellites and spy planes, let us "fly over" distant planets, design skyscrapers, see the brain at work, develop mathematical theories, and understand the cosmos. It is revolutionizing the visual and design arts, architecture, engineering, the biological and physical sciences, mathematics, publishing, and entertainment - every field that utilizes images. With more than 200 illustrations, many specially created, and including 136 reproduced in full colour, this book is a resource for learning not only how phenomena are being visualized today, but also how the barrier between man and computer is dissolving - making possible new kinds of thinking in the arts, science, medicine, communications and entertainment.
