Things have been a little quiet around here as of late. Writing my thesis, finishing course work, and moving to another country all took a toll on the amount of time left for Mitsuba coding. So I am happy to say that I’ve finally moved, graduated from Cornell, and just turned in my Ph. D. thesis!
It’s called Light Transport on Path-Space Manifolds and is essentially a significantly expanded version of the Manifold Exploration paper (from 13 to 153 pages).
