S. Phillips, A. Worrall, C. Willis, D. Paddon, Adaptive Mesh Refinement for the Radiosity Method. Proceedings of Third International Conference on Computational Graphics and Visualization Techniques (Compugraphics '93). ISSN ?, pp. 178–186. December 1993. No electronic version available.


A hierarchical approach is used to represent the data structures for a triangular mesh for the radiosity method. The radiosity values are calculated using a ray tracing method for numerically evaluating form-factors. The radiosities are stored as patch vertex values which enables the mesh to be refined adaptively by evaluating the radiosity gradients across these vertex values.
