This issue features four articles on material appearance, which is important in many computer graphics applications. Two articles on general methods consider two distinct issues: measurement and efficient rendering. The other articles examine two extremely different types of specialized materials, illustrating the variety of application requirements and constraints.
material appearance, rendering, material models, ellipsometry, surface polarization, reflectance, scattering, refraction, salt decay, surgery simulation, computer graphics
