Simulation: flow constrained to the surface of a sphere modeled using Galerkin-Boltzmann equations (Tölke et al '00) discretized with a tenth order  discontinuous Galerkin spectral elements in space and adaptive semi-analytic Runge-Kutta time stepping. See th...

Added ellipsoids to the set of objects supported by the simple Whitted style ray tracer [1] we developed for the CMDA 3634 course @Virginia Tech for Fall 2018. 


To detect collisions between sphere and ellipsoids we use a Newton based algorithm for finding the nearest p...

Capabilities of the Paranumal Accelerated Ray Tracer:

  • Whitted based ray transport (link).

  • Stack based multiple scattering.

  • GPU acceleration. 

  • Primitives: spheres, cylinders, cones, planes, triangles, disks. 

  • Field of view emulated using Monte Ca...
