Self-occlusion is a complex problem in virtual environments. It occurs when part of an object overlaps itself, such that part of itself not normally hidden from the camera, is hidden from the camera by another part of itself. Not so much a problem in static models, but in deformable objects, altered in real-time during the rendering process.
