Learning outcomes:
Theme is oriented on the fundamentals of computer graphic for specialization of the informatics. Target is acquiring information of ground knowledge of fundamentals jobs graphics systems.  In some chapter is pay attention to derivation of the individual algorithms.  Basic contents matters are oriented on following chaps.  The terms of the computer graphics, consecutive on another lecture, application of the computer graphics. Methods of presentation three-dimensional object. Geometric principles of the presentation. Afinne and extended transformations.  The curves and surfaces in computer graphics, basic modes of solution. The algorithms of  the computer graphics - trimmed,  solution visibility,  generation of  ground graphics primitives, area filling. Color :  color models. Hardware for the computer graphic. Graphic formats and interfaces. In finish is attention to the next areas of computer graphics, e. g.: interactive graphics, geometric modeling, shading and reflex of lights, texture, stereoscopic presentation, virtual reality etc.
