There are several approaches to representing shapes in computer graphics. One of the ways to describe objects and operations is Function Representation (FRep). In FRep, a geometric object is de ned by a single continuous real-valued function of point coordinates. Generally geometric modelling is conducted in order to achieve visual outcome. In FRep the transformation of a function into a visual representation relies on extensive sampling of the function. The computational cost of the sampling can cause adverse e ects during applications runtime. In this thesis the problem of e cient evaluation of the de ning function is discussed. An observation is made on wide range of operations and primitives within FRep and their suitability for parallelization. Furthermore, a new novel method is proposed to distribute FReps computational workloads on parallel hardware devices such as graphics programming units and multi-core processors.
