The F# Journal just published an article about computer graphics:
"Visualizations come in many different forms. One of the most common ways to visualize a function of two variables is a contour plot. The function is sampled to identify perimeters where it crosses thresholds and these are rendered as vector paths. This article describes the design and implementation of a simple program that generates contour plots using the meandering triangles algorithm and, when parallelized, runs over 11x faster than Mathematica..."

Background reading on the reference counting vs tracing garbage collection debate - Eight years ago I answered a question on Stack Overflow about the suitability of OCaml and Haskell for soft real-time work like visualization: "*for real-ti...
