Robust and Efficient Light Transport Simulation in Arbitrary EnvironmentsResearch project funded by the Czech Science Foundation (GA ČR).
AbstractDeveloping robust light transport simulation algorithms that could efficiently and accurately render a wide variety of environments remains an important challenge for the computer graphics research. The proposed project addresses this problem. Our objective is to deepen the current understanding of the computational structure of light transport simulation and to develop novel general, robust, automatic, and efficient simulation algorithms. Our research methodology is based on the realization that the common origin of the inefficiencies in most existing light transport algorithms is the ineffectiveness of light transport path sampling strategies. We recognize that a number of subproblems encountered in improving these strategies are in fact special instances of more general problems studied in the prolific Machine Learning research. Studying light transport in this wider context will allow casting the individual problems – so far addressed in an ad hoc manner – in a more formal framework. A wide range of existing and emerging applications will benefit from our results. Publications2014
