  abstract =     "We present a framework for learning new analytic BRDF
                 models through Genetic Programming that we call
                 genBRDF. This approach to reflectance modelling can be
                 seen as an extension of traditional methods that rely
                 either on a phenomenological or empirical process. Our
                 technique augments the human effort involved in
                 deriving mathematical expressions that accurately
                 characterise complex high-dimensional reflectance
                 functions through a large-scale optimisation. We
                 present a number of analysis tools and data
                 visualisation techniques that are crucial to sifting
                 through the large result sets produced by genBRDF in
                 order to identify fruitful expressions. Additionally,
                 we highlight several new models found by genBRDF that
                 have not previously appeared in the BRDF literature.
                 These new BRDF models are compact and more accurate
                 than current state-of-the-art alternatives.",
