             abstract = "Representing reality in computer graphics requires simulating the 
                         appearance of real-world materials. Bidirectional Reflectance 
                         Distribution Functions (BRDFs) are commonly used to perform this 
                         task, as they represent the appearance of a material through the 
                         quotient between the reflected radiance and the incoming 
                         irradiance at this point. Acquiring the BRDF of a real material is 
                         an expensive task due to its high dimensionality, so strategies to 
                         take advantage of already existing measurements are a promising 
                         solution. In this paper we present an approach to create BRDFs for 
                         new materials from a basis of tabular representations of BRDFs. We 
                         apply dimensionality reduction in this basis and then we perform a 
                         triangulation in the resulting reduced space. Thus, any position 
                         in this reduced space can be used to create a new material: using 
                         the triangulation, we estimate coefficients that can be used to 
                         find the BRDF of this new material by interpolating materials in 
                         the original space. In addition, we present a technique to 
                         navigate in this reduced space that enables the creation of 
                         several different materials from two materials in the basis. This 
                         approach provides a wide range of new materials based on real 
                         measurements without the need to acquire new BRDFs. We show that 
                         our navigation is coherent and that it yields a smooth transition 
                         between materials.",
