Ray tracing naturally supports high-quality global illumination effects, but it is computationally costly. Traversal and intersection operations dominate the computation of ray tracing. To accelerate these two operations, we propose a hardware architecture integrating three novel approaches. First, we present an ordered depth-first layout and a traversal(More)
We present a hybrid architecture, inspired by asynchronous BVH construction [1], for ray tracing animated scenes. Our hybrid architecture utilizes heterogeneous hardware resources: dedicated ray-tracing hardware for BVH updates and ray traversal and a CPU for BVH reconstruction. We also present a traversal scheme using a primitive's axis-aligned bounding(More)
We present an ordered depth-first tree layout for ray tracing. Among two child nodes, a child node with the larger surface area is stored next to its parent node. Hence, the probabilities that a ray accesses to the same cache line increase. Our approach can be easily and widely used for various ray tracing systems with very small overheads, as it is based(More)
Many data sets obtained from surveys or medical trials often include missing observations. Since ignoring the missing information usually cause bias and inefficiency, an algorithm for estimating parameters is proposed based on the likelihood function of which the missing information is taken account. A binomial response and normal exploratory model for the(More)
