Abstract

This article describes a very high-speed technique for generating a raster image of curves described by non-parametric polynomials of degree two with continuous derivatives. These polynomials describe the family of conic sections (circles, ellipses, parabolas, hyperbolas) which are especially important for two-dimensional graphics. (Image Omitted)
