### Yiying Tong, instructor, ytong@msu.edu

This course is a computer graphics class at the graduate level. The first half of the course will cover general concepts in rendering, geometric modeling and animation, as well as the basic and intuitive mathematical and geometric tools commonly used in the field. The second half will cover recent research results, ranging from mesh processing, to simulation (fluid, elastic objects), to non-photorealistic rendering.

The course syllabus is available in PDF format.
