From the Inside Flap
Since its original publication fifteen years ago, this valuable compendium has established itself as the most comprehensive source of information on the physical data required for both basic and applied research in color science. Now revised and expanded to reflect the state of the art, Color Science, Second Edition brings together the essential quantitative tools of the science of colorfrom concepts and methods to data and formulae. Here in one source is: details of color filters, light sources, monochromators, and photon detectors
indepth accounts of the working concepts in color matching, color discrimination, and chromatic adaptation
logical presentations of the mathematical algorithms used in the development of these concepts
as well as tabular presentations of the data and formulae that have gained acceptance as the standards for color calculations. This new edition has been updated to recognize the tremendous advances that have occurred in the field in recent years. Youll find up–to–date coverage of color matching, increment–threshold work, chromatic adaptation, and the theoretical modelling of color discrimination and other color–vision phenomena. In addition, the extensive treatment of trichromatic principles and their application has now been expanded to include Maxwells method of trichromatic matching. A valuable working reference for the researcher in color vision, colorimetry, and photometrywhether physicist, physiologist, or psychologist–and for those concerned with color problems in industry, Color Science, Second Edition will also prove helpful to graduate students in psychology, engineering physics, and illuminating engineering.
