Abstract
In this thesis, we explore the way different cuts of diamonds affect the light that interacts with them. While some have analyzed diamond shape mathematically, no currently published research has used simulation to determine how light interacts with diamond models. We used forward ray tracing to simulate photons traveling through the scene using reflection and refraction.
