Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    Attendees should have a good working knowledge of ray tracing and know the basics of global illumination: knowledge of radiometric terms (such as radiance and flux) and knowledge of basic reflection models (such as diffuse, specular, and glossy). Knowledge of basic probability calculus is helpful as well.

    Topics
    Basic Monte Carlo integration. Sampling of BRDFs, lights, and geometry. Variance reduction techniques. Quasi-Monte Carlo techniques. Path-integral formulation. Path tracing and bidirectional path tracing. Metropolis light transport.

    Description
    A detailed overview of the state of the art in Monte Carlo ray tracing with a focus on realistic image synthesis and global illumination.
