Line drawing, leap years, and Euclid
Mitchell A. Harris, Edward M. Reingold
Pages: 68-80
DOI: 10.1145/1013208.1013211
Bresenham's algorithm minimizes error in drawing lines on integer grid points; leap year calculations, surprisingly, are a generalization. We compare the two calculations, explicate the pattern, and discuss the connection of the leap year/line...
