Paper Abstract

The presence of nonimaging specular baffles in a radiation path between a source and collector surface precludes the use of traditional first order optics for mapping the collecting surface into the source space. A method is presented for constructing generalized first order and higher order mappings about a real base ray. These mappings allow one to calculate the view factor between the source and collector without the large number of real ray traces required in alternative techniques.
