Ray Tracing FTP site list, & Radiosity Bibliography

Ray Tracing FTP site list, & Radiosity Bibliography

Post by Eric Hain » Mon, 17 Sep 1990 02:31:47

Here's my latest FTP list for ray tracing related materials.  These sites also
have a large amount of material that is of interest to the graphics community
(no GIF sites, though).  Don't forget:  the netiquette of FTPing is that you
don't grab hunks of data from a site during its work hours.  I haven't checked
many of these sites lately, so let me know of any updates, new sites, etc.

I should also note that "freedom" now has the latest radiosity bibliography
available, and I should be updating the ray tracing bibliography soon.

weedeater.math.yale.edu []:  *Rayshade 3.0 ray tracer*, *color
        quantization code*, RT News, *new Utah raster toolkit*, newer FBM,

1. Ray tracing and radiosity bibliographies updated

The latest online ray tracing and radiosity bibliographies are available online
at weedeater.math.yale.edu:/incoming as RayBib.10.93.Z and RadBib.10.93.Z .
These have been updated with this year's SIGGRAPH, Graphics Interface, and
(various) Eurographics conference references, among others.  Let me know of
anything I'm missing (like your thesis).
