Papers in Honour of Bernhard Banaschewski: Proceedings of the BB Fest 96, a Conference Held at the University of Cape Town, 15–20 July 1996, on Category Theory and its Applications to Topology, Order and Algebra

Coming up from the 1996 Cape city convention in honour of the mathematician Bernhard Banaschewski, this number of 30 refereed papers represents present advancements in classification conception, topology, topos idea, common algebra, version idea, and numerous ordered and algebraic buildings. Banaschewski's impression is mirrored the following, relatively within the contributions to pointfree topology on the degrees of nearness, uniformity, and asymmetry.

CAESAR can also compute the Inbetweens of two cartoon figures. CAESAR has been extensIvely used to produce logos for the TV networks ABC, NBC and CBS. Several cartoons have been produced; the most well-known IS probably Coyote and the Skunk. FIgS. 4 show images produced wIth SCANIMATE and CAESAR. , 1971] is a two-dImensional InteractIve film animatIon system that was developed at the UnIVersIty of Pennsylvania In 1971. As shown In Fig. 5, ANIMATOR comes wIth SIX modes of operatIOn. In the picture definition mode, the user creates a pIcture by assocIatIng a name to a sequence of pIcture pnmitives and prevIOusly defined pIctures.

FIg. 8 shows a PASCAL functIOn called LAW (OP, MAXVAL, FRACT) that gIves a real value correspondmg to a fractIOn (FRACT) of the total tIme expressed m number of Images. OP IS the operatIon (1 = CONSTANT, 2 = ACCELERATION, 3 = DECELERATION, 4 = ACCELERATION then DECELERATION). The value must vary m the range 0 to MAXVAL. 9 shows how such a functIOn IS used m an animatIon program. 2!. 1: (* constant velocity *) LAW := MAXVAL*FRACT, 2: (* acceleration *) LA\v := MAXVAL* (I-COS( PI*FRACT/2» , 3: (* deceleration *) LAW := MAXVAL*SIN(PI*FRACT/2), 4: (* acceleration then deceleration *) LAW := MAXVAL*(I-COS(PI*FRACT»/2 Fig.

FIg. 18 shows an Image produced by InformatIOn International Inc. DIgItal Effects IS another productIOn house that worked on T RO N. They used a laser-scannmg system to dIgItIze, store and reproduce Images. Judson Rosebush, presIdent of DIgItal Effects, IS the pnmary deSIgner of APL VISION and FORTRAN VISION, two computer ammatton packages that are currently used.
