Light Scattering in Smoke (Image 1) This image illustrates how photon mapping can be used to simulate light scattering (including multiple scattering) in smoke. You can read about the techniques used to simulate the smoke in the paper Visual Simulation of Smoke, by Ronald Fedkiw (Stanford University), Jos Stam (Alias|Wavefront) and Henrik Wann Jensen (Stanford University). You can also view animation of the process here. (Date of Image: December 1999) [One of two related images. See Next Image.]
