Hi:
All.
I do not quite understand diffraction's code in GPU Gems Chapter 8.http://http.develope...ugems_ch08.html.

float3 P = mul(ModelViewMatrix, position).xyz;
float3 L = normalize(lightPosition - P);
float3 V = normalize(eyePosition - P);
float3 H = L + V;
float3 N = mul((float3x3)ModelViewMatrixIT, normal);
float3 T = mul((float3x3)ModelViewMatrixIT, tangent);


//from here on,I do not quite understand the parameter u,w,e c. Can you give me some corresponding concept in the equation

float u = dot(T, H) * d;
float w = dot(N, H);
float e = r * u / w;
float c = exp(-e * e);
float4 anis = hiliteColor * float4(c.x, c.y, c.z, 1);

if (u < 0) u = -u;

float4 cdiff = float4(0, 0, 0, 1);
for (int n = 1; n < 8; n++)
{
float y = 2 * u / n - 1;
cdiff.xyz += blend3(float3(4 * (y - 0.75), 4 * (y - 0.5),
4 * (y - 0.25)));
}

And also I do not understand the meaning of the for loop.
