Chapter 9. Simulation Challenges

As it has been illustrated throughout this book, light transport algorithms form the core of simulation frameworks aimed at the realistic rendering of human skin. The development of such algorithms, however, relies on the application of a scientifically sound methodology that involves data gathering, modeling, and evaluation procedures. Although this development process seems straightforward, it is affected by a number of theoretical and practical constraints. In order to move forward and increase the efficacy of existing simulation frameworks, it is necessary to find alternatives to effectively address these constraints. However, this is not a trivial task. In several instances, the root of the problem is outside ...
