Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    A basic understanding of classic photorealistic rendering algorithms such as basic ray tracing and radiosity is assumed. Knowledge of probability theory is very helpful. Some familiarity with transport equations and radiometry is useful, but not necessary.

    Topics
    Short overview of basic ray tracing and radiosity; radiometry and the rendering equation; material properties for computer graphics; general strategies for solving the rendering equation; stochastic radiosity techniques; current state of the art in photorealistic rendering research.

    Description
    The fundamentals of light transport and techniques for computing the global distribution of light in a scene. This course explains basic radiometric quantities, establishes a general framework for stochastic light transport algorithms, and touches on some image display issues.
