Implementing a simple Ray Tracer

The OCaml Journal just published an article describing the design and implementation of a simple ray tracer with real-time incremental visualization in a GUI using OpenGL and GTK+:

"Ray tracing is a simple but powerful approach to photorealistic rendering and implementing a ray tracer is an excellent way to learn a programming language and, in particular, to learn about graphics and optimization in the context of numerical algorithms. This article walks through the design and implementation of a basic ray tracer that provides real-time visualization a scene using OpenGL in a GUI application that provides the user with rendering options using a GTK+ menu..."
