Today I learned from my professor that Ken passed away. I am sure he was a nice guy and his contribution to the field of computer graphics (Specular BRDF Model) is covered in many textbooks.

My advice: Go to lectures. Let him know your name. He will definitely help you and youll get a good grade if you show the potential to learn. If you are brave ask a question in class, but make sure it is a really good question. Overall, material was interesting and Torrence did his best to teach it.

Very nice guy. Takes a fairly difficult course and makes it much more understandable.

What's wrong with Torrance? HW is hard but that's just the nature of a subject with lot's o table look-ups. He does explain stuff reasonably clearly and provides enough help that you can get good grades if you really want to...

Good guy, but hard to follow lectures. Ridiculous problem sets that take forever. Poorly graded tests that dont really test your knowledge with high point T/F questions. Tries hard, but can go too fast.
