1. Abstract
A shadowdeterminationacceleratorfor ray tracing is
presented.It is built on top of the uniform voxel traversal
grid sfucture. The acceleratorproves to be ratherefficient'
requires little additionai memory and the worst case scenarlo
per shadow determination just reduces down to traditional
voxel traversal.It can alsobe extendedto model linear, area
lights, aswell asatrnosphericshadows.
Keywords: grid, intersection culling, occlusion, penumbra,
ray tracing,shadows,umbra,voxel traversal.
