57 Log spectral estimation for stationary and nonstationary processesThis research is concerned with two log spectral estimators in the context of both stationary and nonstationary signals. They differ because in one smoothing is realized before the logarithmic transformation, while the other is smoothed in the logarithimc domain. It is shown that for stationary sign...Log spectral estimation; Nonstationary processes; Log spectral estimators1975
58 The aliasing problem in computer-synthesized shaded imagesThis paper describes work toward improving the quality of computer-synthesized shaded images. Current (practical) hidden-surface algorithms produce an image whose precision is strictly limited by the number of picture elements.
