Hey ! 
This week, Spherical harmonics!

What did I do this week

The main task for the week was to include an implementation of spherical harmonics (upto the order of 4) as a FURY actor. This was the initial milestone to be achieved to work towards the support of using spherical harmonics as an visualization technique. I have added the GIFs for both the renders below. I also worked on a occlusion based lighting model .

Spherical harmonics for different values of order and degree:



The code for the above render is available at the branch : https://github.com/lenixlobo/fury/tree/SDF-Experiments  

What's coming up next

The next task to add support for the user to be able to render different spherical harmonics by passing argumentst

Did I get stuck anywhere

Spherical harmonics involve a lot of complicated math behind the hood. So the initial days were spent understanding the math .I was confused while working on the implementation but eventually got it working. .
