We distinguish the direct sunlighting problems from the inverse ones. The former consist of determining the sunlighting states of a given scene using both shadows and shadings; the latter consist of resolving the geometrical conditions that enable a scene to achieve a given sunlighting constraint in a design context, i.e. sunlighting becomes a formgiver.
