The physiology of the human eye.

  • The human eye as a camera system
  • Rods / Cones
  • Scotopic and Photopic vision

Definitions :

  • Radiometry
  • Photometry
  • Foreshortening
  • Solid Angle
  • Radiance
  • Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF)
  • Irradiance
  • Radiosity

 The radiometry of thin lenses

Reflectance models :

  • Diffuse surfaces and the Lambertian model
  • Specular surfaces and the Phong model.
  • Ambient irradiance 
  • The combined ambient, diffuse and reflectance model.
