Abstract/Summary

Photon mapping is a realistic image synthesis technique which uses global illumination to accurately simulate lighting. However, the time it takes to render images using this technique is too slow for real-time applications.

The research extended the basic photon mapping technique which allowed it to render images at interactive rates. The research presents an alternate set of data structures and algorithms which can be implemented on programmable graphics hardware. The use of programmable graphics hardware is essential in rendering images in real-time.

Keywords: global illumination, photon mapping, realistic image synthesis, real-time rendering, programmable graphics hardware.
