In computer graphics, there are many surface detection algorithms. When we view a picture containing non-transparent objects and surfaces, then we cannot see those objects from view which is behind from objects closer to eye. We must remove these hidden surfaces to get a realistic screen image. The identification and removal of these surfaces is called Hidden-surface problem. In this paper I review some visible surface detection algorithms like Z buffer method, Area subdivision method, Scan line method etc.
