hidden surface removal
Established Date: Jan. 1, 1969
This is the process of determining which surfaces are visible and which are occluded, or hidden, by others closer to the camera. This also is called visible-surface determination. The self-named "warnock recursive subdivision algorithms for hidden surface elimination" were developed by John Warnock (Ph.D., University of Utah, 1969).
