EuCAP2023 - Min-Path-Tracing: A Diffraction Aware Alternative to Image Method in Ray Tracing

EuCAP 2023 presentation slides and code.

On Monday, March 27, 2023, I presented my work at the 17th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP 2023). The work was pretty similar to the one presented at the COST meeting last year, in Lyon, and contains very minimal changes in the contents.

Slides, however, were modified to contain more details about the mathematics behind our methods, as well as an example application to meta-surfaces.


The following slides are made with RevealJS and are interactive!

Use basic keys like LEFT and RIGHT to navigate through slides, or F to go full screen.

The slides were generated using the Manim (The Manim Community Developers, 2022) animation engine and Manim Slides (Eertmans, 2023), one of my open source projects, to combine the animations into slides and later convert them in a RevealJS .html file.
