This book offers a practical, problem-based approach to color physics. It focuses on the key issues encountered in modern color engineering, including efficient representation of color information, Fourier analysis of reflectance spectra, and advanced colorimetric computation. It emphasizes practical applications rather than the techniques themselves, with material structured around key topics such as color calibration of visual displays, computer recipe prediction, and models for colour-appearance prediction.

Key features:

  • A compendium of equations and numerical data required by the modern colour and imaging scientist.
  • Numerous examples of solutions and algorithms for a wide-range of computational problems in colour science.
  • Example scripts using the MATLAB programming language.

This edition contains substantial new/revised material, including three innovative chapters on color imaging, psychophysical methods, and physiological color spaces. The MATLAB toolbox has been extended to go alongside the current teaching toolbox and a java toolbox has been added for users writing web applications
