September, 2006


This work investigates the application of photon mapping to model environmental acoustics. The resulting acoustic {\em sonel mapping} technique is a Monte-Carlo based approach that can be used to model acoustic environments while accounting for diffuse and specular acoustic reflections as well as diffraction effects. This modeling is performed in an efficient manner in contrast to available deterministic techniques. The sonel mapping approach models many of the subtle interaction effects required for realistic acoustical modeling.
