Ken-Sen Huang has a link to a very nice paper on manifold exploration for MC rendering:

The extended technical report makes for some great reading. I'm particularly impressed at how the authors have unified BDPT, MLT and ERPT into a single abstract framework from which they draw comparisons to their own approach. It includes extending ERPT to handle all light transport which until now has been implicit, but never actually defined or tested. This is how you do thorough research, IMHO. Bravo.

@igneus: Extended technical report? Are you referring to something other than the ACM ToG preprint? If so, where is it?

A link to the PDF is here.
