“In his well presented and very well researched book, Henrik Wann Jensen demonstrates the technique of photon mapping…I found the book to be well written and thorough…The primary audience for this book will be computer graphics researchers in either industry or academia interested in creating highly realistic images, and computer graphics students at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. The introduction and background chapters are particularly well written, making this a useful text for a graduate-level course in image synthesis.”-Bruce Gooch, SIAM Review
