Anisotropic reflection models


We present a new set of lighting models derived from the questions of electromagnetism. These models describe the reflection and refraction of light from surfaces which exhibit anisotropy---surfaces with preferred directions. The model allows a new mapping technique, which we call frame mapping. We also discuss the general relationship between geometric models, surface mapping of all types, and lighting models in the context of rendering images with extreme complexity.
