res will ask you the following questions:

  • Your personal id number. Enter it.
  • Your study status; if you are an international masters student and started your studies at KTH in 2004, you should enter IM-04, if you are a computer science and engineering student and started in 1999, you should enter D-99, etc.
  • Your exercise group. Just enter 1.

I will assume that you can be reached through your NADA mail address. If you don't normally read mail on NADA, then see to that your mail is forwarded to an address you do read.

Prerequisites for the Visualisation course are (the equivalents of) Numerical methods II (2D1240) and either of Computer graphics with interaction (2D1323), Graphics and interaction programming (2D1953/2D1640) or Computer graphics and user interfaces (NA8740).

Concretely this means that you should understand and be familiar with the following words and concepts: view and model transforms; scene graphs; the RGB and HSV colour models; polygon models; pixels and voxels; scalars, vectors and matrices as applied to graphics. If you don't know all of these terms you need to read up on computer graphics. A suitable bok may be Interactive Computer Graphics: A Top-Down Approach with OpenGL by Edward Angel, Addison-Wesley, 2003.
