"The Graphics Gems Package" contains Volumes 1, 2, and 3 of the "Graphics Gems Series". Started in 1990 by Andrew Glassner, the vision and purpose of the "The Graphics Gems Series" was - and still is - to provide tips, techniques, and algorithms for graphics programmers. All of the gems are written by programmers who work in the field and are motivated by a common desire to share interesting ideas and tools with their colleagues. Each volume provides a new set of innovative solutions to a variety of programming problems. It contains public domain C implementations of many gems. Supplements and extends Graphics Gems - uses similar notation and, when applicable, refers to material in Graphics Gems. Although it refers to Graphics Gems, "Graphics Gems II" is self-contained - you don't need to own "Graphics Gems to use Graphics Gems II".
