ADRRS (RR) is the adjoint-driven Russian roulette method by Vorba et al. , and ADRRS (RRS) is the variant thereof that includes splitting. Ours (RR) is our efficiency-aware Russian roulette method, with Ours (RRS) additionally including splitting. Ours (RRS) w/o primary splits is a variant of our method that does not perform RR or splitting at the primary hit point. For more details, please consult our paper.
