Abstract:

A method for the adaptive computation of ray traces directly without going through the intermediate step of determining refractive indices or refractive index gradients is demonstrated. The basis of the new method of direct ray tracing is presented together with an exposition of the inherent difficulty of using measured or computed refractive index or refractive index gradients for ray tracing purposes.
