This paper presents a rendering framework called EFFIGI (Efficient Framework For Implementing Global Illumination) that uses interfaces which express both geometric concepts and mathematical ones, using object-oriented and component objects mnethods. EFFIGI facilitates the development of new techniques and the implementation of existing ones, by providing a flexible but comprehensive geometric and mathematical architecture. The framework eliminates the need for users to implement an entire system, enabling them to focus only on those areas of partiucular interest.
