literate-raytracer

This is a literate [raytracer](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_tracing_(graphics), written in Javascript. The demo, code listing, and explanation are all one part: you can understand the implementation by reading it in combination with literate-style code comments.

This is intended as a learning platform for those trying to connect the mathematical and engineering explanations of raytracing and understand the behavior of the algorithm well enough to do interesting things.
