Title:

    Fast Poisson disk sampling in arbitrary dimensions

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    In many applications in graphics, particularly rendering, generating samples from a blue noise distribution is important. However, existing efficient techniques do not easily generalize beyond two dimensions. Here I demonstrate a simple modification to dart throwing which permits generation of Poisson disk samples in O(N) time, easily implemented in arbitrary dimension.
