Radiometry 25 participating media. Then, by the law of conservation of energy, all energy leaving dAx in the direction of the surface dAy must arrive at dAy , L(x → y) cos θx dωx←dAy dAx = L(y ← x) cos θy dωy←dAx dAy ; L(x → y) cos θx cos θy dAy cos θx dAx dAx = L(y ← x) cos θy dAy , 2 2 rxy rxy and thus, L(x → y) = L(y ← x). 11) Therefore, radiance is invariant along straight paths of travel and does not attenuate with distance. This property of radiance is only valid in the absence of participating media, which can absorb and scatter energy between the two surfaces.
This equation brings the two fundamental quantities, importance and radiance, together as follows. For each pixel j in an image, Mj represents the measurement of radiance through that pixel j. The measurement function M is Mj = W (x ← Ψ)L(x ← Ψ) cos(Nx , Ψ)dAx dωΨ . 31) We assume here that the sensors are part of the scene so that we can integrate over their surface. 9 Summary This chapter presented the formulation of the fundamental problems that global illumination must solve: the rendering equation and the measurement equation.
The following properties of radiance explain why radiance is important for image generation. Property 1: Radiance is invariant along straight paths. Mathematically, the property of the invariance of radiance is expressed as L(x → y) = L(y ← x), which states that the radiance leaving point x directed towards point y is equal to the radiance arriving at point y from the point x. , there is no participating medium. This important property follows from the conservation of light energy in a small pencil of rays between two diﬀerential surfaces at x and y, respectively.
