Advances in Monte Carlo Rendering

The Legacy of Jaroslav Křivánek

Jaroslav Křivánek has been an outstanding and highly respected researcher of the rendering community who passed away far ahead of time. Through his numerous contributions to light transport simulation he managed to profoundly influence an entire domain of academia and industry.

In this course, we will recap many important contributions of Jaroslav's career, underlining their practicality and pointing out how they all were consequent steps to finding the "one" robust light transport simulation algorithm that would efficiently render any given scene. Rarely has a single person had such an impact, and the authors believe it is worth remembering and continuing his legacy.
