A method for the application of importance sampling to wavelength selection in ray tracing Monte Carlo solvers is introduced. In this method individual lines are treated independently, and probability distribution and weighting functions are applied to individual lines. The method reduces the number of photons required to reach the same statistical precision as the standard Monte Carlo method.
