Radiosity on Graphics Hardware

August 4th, 2003

This report by Coombe et al. describes a technique for computing radiosity, including an adaptive subdivision of the model, using graphics hardware. The technique uses floating point textures and fragment programs to perform progressive refinement using a novel implementation of hemicube radiosity on the GPU. (Radiosity on Graphics Hardware.
