Path Tracing lighting engine algorithm

hello, I see your path tracing implementation is referenced with http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/344088.html, But the link is dead. So could you tell me the title and author of the algorithm ?

The general reference is the thesis of Carsten Wächter
Wächter, Carsten (2008): Quasi-Monte Carlo light transport simulation by efficient ray tracing. Open Access Repositorium der Universität Ulm.

@Mango3 Is that the paper initially referenced by http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/344088.html?

I think so, I googled the citeseer reference and a link to Carsten’s thesis came up with that reference.

I did that too, and I couldn’t find anything relevant.

My guess is that you ended up on https://www.cnblogs.com/len3d/archive/2012/09/18/2690068.html, where len3d (a former appleseed contributor!) put a bunch of links, and it looks like most of them have been extracted from appleseed’s source code.

The link to “Quasi-Monte Carlo light transport simulation by efficient ray tracing” does not appear related to http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/344088.html, they just follow each other:

Maybe CiteSeerX or the Twitter crowd can help us:
