Calculate diffuse reflectance


R = diffuse(Nx,Ny,Nz,S)


R = diffuse(Nx,Ny,Nz,S) returns the reflectance of a surface with normal vector components [Nx,Ny,Nz]. S specifies the direction to the light source. You can specify these directions as three vectors [x,y,z] or two vectors [Theta Phi] (in spherical coordinates).

Lambert's Law: R = cos(PSI) where PSI is the angle between the surface normal and light source.
