Do we need to download some large software in order to complete the homework?


It's not particularly large (compared to, say, photoshop) because you will be implementing and compiling source code for all assignments.


Will there be any discussion in the course about hardware used for graphics (GPU, GPU vs CPU)? I'm guessing we'll at least be looking at properties for particular algorithms, such as parallelism, which would be relevant to hardware design.


There will be a little bit of discussion. But most of the emphasis of this course will be to cover the fundamental building blocks of computer graphics, namely data structures and algorithms.
