Abstract:

The aim of this thesis is to design and implement a graphic subsystem for a graphic display terminal with conic section capabilities. The display terminal with its associated peripheral hardware is connected to a PDP-1150 computer. The basic concepts and design principles of graphic systems are discussed. A brief description is given of the particular hardware configuration of the Conographic-12 display system as installed at the Naval Postgraduate School. Concepts incorporated in the designed implementation are explained. Recommendations are included for possible future extensions of the systems capabilities.
