Precomputed Atmospheric Scattering
An accurate method to render the atmosphere in real time from any viewpoint from ground
level to outer space, while taking Rayleigh and Mie multiple scattering into account.

Octree Textures
a new kind of texture based on an octree, which needs no parameterization other than the surface itself, and yet has similar storage requirements to 2D maps.

Interactive Rendering using the Render Cache
The method works both by caching previous results and reprojecting them to estimate the current image and by directing the renderer’s sampling to more rapidly improve subsequent images.
