Paper Abstract

We propose a perspective volume graphics rendering algorithm on SIMD mesh-connected computers and implement the algorithm on the Parallel Algebraic Logic computer. The algorithm is a parallel ray casting algorithm. It decomposes the 3D perspective projection into two transformations that can be implemented in the SIMD fashion to solve the data redistribution problem caused by non-regular data access patterns in the perspective projection.
