Contemporaneously, Isaac Newton (1642–1727) observed dispersion, where white light splits into its component colors when it passes through a prism. He concluded that sunlight is composed of light of different colors, which are refracted by glass to different extents. Newton, over the course of his research, increasingly embraced the emission (corpuscular) theory of light over the wave theory. Thus, in the beginning of the nineteenth century, there were two conflicting theories of the behavior of light: the particle (emission/corpuscular) theory and the wave theory.

The distribution function D specifies the distribution of the microfacets for the material. Various functions can be used to specify this distribution. One of the most common distributions is the distribution by Beckmann: D(θh ) = m2 tan θh 2 1 e−( m ) , 4 cos θh where θh is the angle between the normal and the half-vector and cos θh = N · H. Also, m is the root-mean-square slope of the microfacets, and it captures surface roughness. The geometry term G captures masking and self-shadowing by the microfacets: G = min{1, 2(N · H)(N · Θ) 2(N · H)(N · Ψ) , }.

However, for the purposes of image generation in computer graphics, the wave nature of light is also typically ignored. 3 Geometric Optics The geometric optics model is the simplest and most commonly used model of light in computer graphics. In this model, the wavelength of light is assumed to be much smaller than the scale of the objects that the light interacts with. The geometric optics model assumes that light is emitted, reflected, and transmitted. , effects such as diffraction where light “bends around” objects are not considered.
