2). 2. 2: Four steps of the volume ray casting algorithm: (1) ray casting, (2) ray sampling, (3) shading, and (4) compositing. Source: Wikimedia Commons [56]. pixel position directed toward the volume is discretized into sample points; the sample points are then evaluated according to transfer functions, and, lastly, combined into one value via numerical integration. id /, where i is the i -th sample in the ray, and d D D=n, where D is the length of the ray and n is the total number of sample points.

In a nutshell, a manifold surface is one in which the neighborhood of any of its points is homeomorphic to a (half-) disc. ¹ Next, we review one of the most commonly used technique for approximating isosurfaces using triangular meshes. e goal of this chapter is to introduce an algorithm for verify isosurface extraction techniques. How is an isosurface approximated? Typically, isosurfaces are approximated via triangulations. 2 ISOSURFACE APPROXIMATION In the general case, isosurfaces cannot be represented exactly by a computer; thus, they are approximated.

47 CHAPTER 5 Volume Rendering Verification In this chapter, we introduce a technique for the verification of volume rendering algorithms. We start with a description of the volume rendering algorithm, and then discuss the the standard discretization procedures, and finally, how this information can be used to verify the algorithm correctness. At the core of the verification procedure, we use the order of accuracy and error convergence analysis. We show how a simple black-box algorithm can be used to verify volume rendering techniques.
