Scattering
The computed spectrum is an integral over the spectrum of the following product:
env.point
,
ω_{i} the (negated) direction of the incoming light ray,
ν_{i} the frequency where the incoming ray is sampled,
ω_{o} the direction of the outgoing light ray,
ν_{o} the frequency where the outgoing ray is sampled,
and θ the angle between the surface normal and out
.

Emitter
At first, we consider the case where the emitter is in fact a light source. Let L(x, ω, ν) be the emitted spectral radiance for the frequency ν at the light's surface point x in direction ω. The radiant exitance (emitted spectral power per area) at x is defined as
rays.size
). Then
for a function f(x, ν) which is to be
integrated over the light surface, the sum
Now if the emitter is a sensor, let W(x, ω, ν) be the emitted spectral importance for frequency ν at the sensors's surface point x in direction ω. The quantities W^{0}(x, ν) and W^{1}(x, ω, ν) are defined similarly to the case of light sources:
Let p_{x} be the probability density used for the ray
origin, then the field originDensity
is set to p_{x}(o_{i}) for each ray.
For emitters which are concentrated at a single point
(e.g., point lights) p_{x} is not
a regular function, the value originDensity
will
be set to a multiple of Scattering.DELTA_FACTOR
.
The ray properties which are not mentioned in the given formulas are neither used nor modified. These are the direction and its density.
