Systems of Standardized Tristimulus Values, Color Qualities, Chroma of Effect Pigments

  • Georg Klein
Chapter
Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 154)

Abstract

Because the trichromatic color sense of the observer is based on additive color mixture, every color impression can be assigned three numerical color values. These color stimulus specifications are, so to speak, representatives of a color. In this chapter, the previous tristimulus values are extended, specifically in order to better meet some coloristical requirements of color industry. The empirical three color values can additionally be interpreted as points in a color space. We restrict the discussion first to the standardized systems that have been proposed for application by the CIE. The most important empirical color difference formulas in colorimetry follow from these systems. These formulas enable to calculate only the color differences of similar or nearly equal colors.
