Parallel implementation of the raytracer, Data Structure & Algorithms

You are supposed to do the following:

  • Write a parallel implementation of the raytracer using pthreads.
  • Measure and compare the execution times for (i) the sequential version given to you, (ii) your parallel version on 1 cpu/thread, and (iii) your parallel version on 8 cpus/threads. Further, calculate the speedup of your parallel application on 8 cpus.

What is quick sort? Quick sort is a sorting algorithm that uses the idea if split and conquer. This algorithm chooses an element called as pivot element; search its position in

Approximating smooth surfaces with Polygon nets Networks of polygons are used to represent smooth surfaces. They are, of course, only an approximation to the true surface, but

In this sorting algorithm, multiple swapping occurs in one pass. Smaller elements move or 'bubble' up to the top of the list, so the name given to the algorithm. In this method,
