Reaction: A Survey of Algorithms for Volume Visualization

This is an excellent read as an introduction of volume visualization. The paper not only explains and compares the Volume Visualization algorithms, it also discusses other aspects like data and volume characteristics. The paper describes two methods of volume visualization DVR and SF. The paper makes a important point under photorealism section that non plausible objects are difficult to interpret and hence we should avoid using such objects. The paper describes different algorithms in brief. The paper gives a good introduction of volume visualization algorithms.
