Paper Abstract

Projection is a frequently used process in image processing and visualization. In volume graphics, projection is used to render the essential content of a 3D volume onto a 2D image plane. For Radon transform, projection is used to transform the image space into a parameter space. In this paper, we propose a matrix decomposition method called identity-plus- row decomposition for designing fast algorithms for projections. By applying this method, we solve the data redistributed problem due to the irregular data access patterns present in those applications on SIMD mesh- connected computers, developing fast algorithms for volume rendering and Radon transform on SIMD mesh-connected computers.
