> Hello cafe,

> Radiosity Rendering Algorithms may be reduced significantly if it was 
> implemented in Haskell and taking advantage of the lazy evaluation so 
> that only what can be seen from the viewer's perspective point of view 
> is calculated, and the rest of the scene just remains as thunks waiting 
> for them to be calculated in case they are needed.

> saying could be really useful and what has already been done (or why I'm 
> so lost that I'm probably gonna fail my exam tomorrow hahaha)...
> One of the things I'm studying is the Monte Carlo Radiosity Methods 
> which takes advantages of non-determinism to create stochastic 
> algorithms, I guess this is more difficult to implement in Haskell, 
> please if you know any of this Monte Carlo Methods for Radiosity 
> Algorithms share that knowledge with me (and the list).
