This paper provides an overview of the issues and techniques involved in shadow generation in mixed reality environments. Shadow generation techniques in virtual environments are explained briefly. The key factors characterizing the well-known techniques are described in detail and the pros and cons of each technique are discussed. The conceptual perspective, the improvements, and future techniques are also investigated, sum- marized, and analysed in depth. This paper aims to provide researchers with a solid background on the state- of-the-art implementation of shadows in mixed reality. Thus, this could make it easier to choose the most appropriate method to achieve the aims. It is also hoped that this analysis will help researchers find solutions to the problems facing each technique.
