My career at CEA
Summer job in the super-computer secret labI was hired in August 1967 at the CEA/DAM center of Limeil-Brévannes as a computer maintenance technician for one month. I worked there in the Computing Center under the direction of Mr Gilbert Comparetti.
STERE1: stereoscopic visionMy work concerned a 3-D visualization software allowing stereoscopic vision of mathematical surfaces, as a FORTRAN-4 library. Images were computed on an IBM 7094 mainframe, and printed on a Stromberg-Carlson SC4020 film printer. This software was registered in the CEA Bibliothèque Graphique with a technical note GRAF.001.
A few examples (torus, Plucker's conoid) are given in the directory EXEMPLES.
KINO: 3-D animationI then added dynamics to the graphics library, in order to experiment in 3-D animation.
Two versions KINO1 and KIN02 were developed, differing essentially in the representation of the visualized surface.
