Gouraud shading

In Gouraud shading, instead of assigning a single intensity to a surface, the average intensities at each vertex are calculated. Once the average intensity of each vertex is calculated the intensities are then interpolated along each scan line between these averages to give a smooth appearance. A given vertex might be shared between several surfaces, and hence its normal vector can influence the intensity of each of the surfaces to which it contributes.
