Colorimetry, the science of quantitvely describing color, is essential for color reproduction technology. This is because it creates standards by which to measure color, using mathematical techniques and software to ensure fidelity across media, allow accurate color mixing, and to develop color optimization.

This book is a comprehensive and thorough introduction to colorimetry, taking the reader from basic concepts through to a variety of industrial applications. Set out in clear, easy-to-follow terminology, Ohta and Robertson explain fundamental principles such as color specification, the CIE (International Commission on Illumination) system, and color vision and appearance models. They also cover the following topics:

  • the optimization of color reproduction;
  • uniform color spaces and color difference formulae, including the CIEDE 2000 formula;
  • applications of metamerism, chromatic adaptation, color appearance and color rendering;
  • mathematical formulae for calculating color mixing, maximising luminous efficacy, and designing illuminants with specific properties.

Colorimetry: Fundamentals and Applications is an ideal reference for practising color engineers, color scientists and imaging professionals working on color systems. It is also a practical guide for senior undergraduate and graduate students who want to acquire knowledge in the field.
