Title The utilization of procedure models in digital image synthesis
Date 1976
Description Many algorithms have been developed for synthesizing shaded images of three dimensional objects modeled by computer. In spite of widely differing approaches the current state of the art algorithms are surprisingly similar with respect to the richness of the scenes they can process. One attribute these algorithms have in common is the use of a conventional passive data base to represent the objects being modeled. This paper postulates and explores the use of an alternative modeling technique which uses procedures to represent the objects being modeled. The properties and structure of such "procedure models" are investigated and an algorithm based on them is presented
