Paper Abstract

The panel discussed termonlogy briefly. The name "Bidirectional Reflectance Function" (BDRF) is a tongue-twister, but seems to be well established and no one has a better suggestion, so it will stick. It was pointed out that BDRF is a quantity that depends on four angles, but is usually quoted from only a few data points, so a related term such as "spread function" or "average BDRF" might be better.
