An advanced ray-tracing technique for computing luminances in unempty spaces is presented. The method is a hybrid of finite element analysis and Monte Carlo techniques. Interreflection between specular surfaces of complex geometries can be computed to any desired accuracy. Applications to synthetic imaging for lighting design are highlighted.
