N2 - It is known that a scene consisting of A- convex polyhedra of total complexity n has at most 0(n4 k2) distinct orthographic views, and that the number of such views is Ω((nk2 + n2)2) in the worst case. The corresponding bounds for perspective views are 0(n6 k3) and Ω((nk2+n2)3), respectively. In this paper, we close these gaps by improving the lower bounds. We construct an example of a scene with Ө(n4 k2) orthographic views, and another with Ө(n6 k3) perspective views. Our construction can also be used to improve the known lower bounds for the number of silhouette views and for the number of distinct views from a viewpoint moving along a straight line.
