 Abstract: We present domain-specific transformations of the ray-tracing algorithm targeting reconfigurable hardware devices. Ray tracing is a computationally intensive algorithm used to produce photorealistic images of three-diemnsional scenes.We show how the proposed transformations can adapt the basic ray-tracing algorithm to a breadth-first style, and give estimates for the hardware needed for realtime raytracing.
