Melbourne's Water Catchments: Perspectives on a World-Class Water Supply by James Viggers, Haylee Weaver, David Lindenmayer
2013 | ISBN: 1486300065 | English | 144 pages | PDF | 13 MB

Melbourne’s Water Catchments: Perspectives on a World-Class Water Supply
This book charts the history of the water catchments and water supply for the city of Melbourne, which has many unique aspects that are a critical part of the history of Melbourne, Victoria and Australia. Much of the development of the water supply system was many decades ahead of its time and helped buffer the city of Melbourne from major diseases, droughts and water shortages.

The authors present a chronology of the evolution of the catchment and water supply system pre-1900 to today. They discuss major developments, policies, and construction and management activities. Each chapter is illustrated with historical black and white images and also newly taken photos that contrast present scenes with those from the past.

The book includes many extraordinary insights into current and future issues with Melbourne's water supply, including issues associated with the highly controversial north-south pipeline, the desalination plant and the potential for further diversions of the Yarra River.

KEY FEATURES
* Tells the story of how the water catchment system developed for Melbourne has been consistently ahead of its time has had a massive influence on the development of the city and Australia
* Includes both historical and current content and photographs
* Includes issues associated with the highly controversial north-south

Unmoralische Rezepte

Manuel Vzquez Montalbn, "Unmoralische Rezepte"
German | 2001 | ISBN: 3492042481, 3492237355 | 159 pages | PDF | 6 MB
Gemeinsames Essen, so argumentiert Vzquez Montalbn, wirkt aphrodisierend und frdert die Erotik. In freier Assoziation erlutert er, warum sich Zucchiniblten in Bierteig besonders dazu eignen, rothaarige Schnheiten zu becircen, warum eine Pilzpat unvermeidlich zu noch hheren Genssen fhrt, oder wie ein Omelett zum unendlichen Quell lasziver Phantasien werden kann. Nicht weniger erregende Folgen hat der Kartoffelauflauf »Janssons Versuchung«, wird das Sardellenfilet mit dem ntigen Fingerspitzengefhl behandelt, und selbst die profane Bohne bringt nach Vzquez Montalbns Rezept das Blut in Wallung. Mit Gespr fr das entscheidende Detail und einer guten Prise Satire hat Vzquez Montalbn ein ungewhnliches Kochbuch zusammengestellt, das sich nicht nur vorzglich zum Nachkochen eignet, sondern auch Lust macht auf mehr …

OpenGL 4.0 Shading Language Cookbook

OpenGL 4.0 Shading Language Cookbook by David Wolff
2011 | ISBN: 1849514763 | English | 340 pages | PDF | 9.15 MB
Over 60 highly focused, practical recipes to maximize your OpenGL Shading language use

A full set of recipes demonstrating simple and advanced techniques for producing high-quality, real-time 3D graphics using GLSL 4.0
How to use the OpenGL Shading Language to implement lighting and shading techniques
Use the new features of GLSL 4.0 including tessellation and geometry shaders
How to use textures in GLSL as part of a wide variety of techniques from basic texture mapping to deferred shading
Simple, easy-to-follow examples with GLSL source code, as well as a basic description of the theory behind each technique
In Detail

The OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) is a programming language used for customizing parts of the OpenGL graphics pipeline that were formerly fixed-function, and are executed directly on the GPU. It provides programmers with unprecedented flexibility for implementing effects and optimizations utilizing the power of modern GPUs. With version 4.0, the language has been further refined to provide programmers with greater flexibility, and additional features have been added such as an entirely new stage called the tessellation shader.

The OpenGL Shading Language 4.0 Cookbook provides easy-to-follow examples that first walk you through the theory and background behind each technique then go on to provide and explain the GLSL and OpenGL code needed to implement it. Beginning level through to advanced techniques are presented including topics such as texturing, screen-space techniques, lighting, shading, tessellation shaders, geometry shaders, and shadows.

The OpenGL Shading Language 4.0 Cookbook is a practical guide that takes you from the basics of programming with GLSL 4.0 and OpenGL 4.0, through basic lighting and shading techniques, to more advanced techniques and effects. It presents techniques for producing basic lighting and shading effects; examples that demonstrate how to make use of textures for a wide variety of effects and as part of other techniques; examples of screen-space techniques, shadowing, tessellation and geometry shaders, noise, and animation.

The OpenGL Shading Language 4.0 Cookbook provides examples of modern shading techniques that can be used as a starting point for programmers to expand upon to produce modern, interactive, 3D computer graphics applications.

What you will learn from this book

Compile, install, and communicate with shader programs
Use new features of GLSL 4.0 such as subroutines and uniform blocks
Implement basic lighting and shading techniques such as diffuse and specular shading, per-fragment shading, and spotlights
Apply single or multiple textures
Use textures as environment maps for simulating reflection or refraction
Implement screen-space techniques such as gamma correction, blur filters, and deferred shading
Implement geometry and tessellation shaders
Learn shadowing techniques including shadow mapping and screen space ambient occlusion
Use noise in shaders
Use shaders for animation
Approach

This hands-on guide cuts short the preamble and gets straight to the point – actually creating graphics, instead of just theoretical learning. Each recipe is specifically tailored to satisfy your appetite for producing real-time 3-D graphics using GLSL 4.0.

Who this book is written for

If you are an OpenGL programmer looking to use the modern features of GLSL 4.0 to create real-time, three-dimensional graphics, then this book is for you. Familiarity with OpenGL programming, along with the typical 3D coordinate systems, projections, and transformations is assumed. It can also be useful for experienced GLSL programmers who are looking to implement the techniques that are presented here.
