A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation of an open wheel racecar,
created using Caedium Professional and rendered by POV-Ray, was selected as the
front and back cover of the popular textbook Fox and McDonald's Introduction to
Fluid Mechanics, 8th Edition, Philip J. Pritchard.

Cool image(s), but what immediately strikes me about them is the lack(?) of
anti-aliasing. Or not enough, in any case.  Granted, AA may not even be a
consideration when doing fluid dynamics tests; but if *I* were going to put a CG
image on a textbook cover, I'd want it to look its best. (And I can imagine a
typical four-color printing process playing havoc with those jaggies.)

Yes you are right, the image on the website could be better.

However, the image for the book cover was much higher resolution at 2550 x 3300
pixels (8.5" x 11" @ 300dpi) and the level of anti-aliasing looked fine too. I
have a physical copy of the book (8.5" x 11") and there aren't any anti-aliasing
artifacts that I can see.
