Visual Special Relativity
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Albert Einstein predicted in 1905 with his paper on special relativity the signi cantvisual eects of objects moving close to the speed of light. Einstein could not see them then but with todays graphical hardware it is possible to produce these eects in real time in a computer simulation. In this thesis the implementation, results and comparison of two techniques for doing this are presented. The two techniques dier substantially in how they execute the task. One alters the vertex positions of the objects and the other performs the eects as a post process step using a cube map. The results of the two techniques are generally the same,both having dierent advantages and disadvantages.
