Paper Abstract

This paper examines the role of the optimization process in illumination design. We will discuss why the starting point of the optimization process is crucial to a better design and why it is also important that the user understands the basic design problem and implements the correct merit function. Both a brute force method and the Downhill Simplex method will be used to demonstrate optimization methods with focus on using interactive design tools to create better starting points to streamline the optimization process.
