Color: An Introduction to Practice and Principles, Third by Rolf G. Kuehni(auth.)

By Rolf G. Kuehni(auth.)

The one-stop connection with the necessities of colour technological know-how and technology?now absolutely up-to-date and revised

The totally up-to-date Third variation of colour: An advent to perform and Principles maintains to supply a very finished, non-mathematical advent to paint technological know-how, whole with historic, philosophical, and art-related topics.

Geared to non-specialists and specialists alike, Color essentially explains key technical options pertaining to gentle, human imaginative and prescient, and colour conception phenomena. It covers colour order platforms intensive, examines colour copy applied sciences, and experiences the historical past of colour technology in addition to its dating to paintings and colour concord. Revised all through to mirror the most recent advancements within the box, the Third Edition:

  • Features many new colour illustrations, now absolutely included into the text
  • Offers new views on what colour is all approximately, diverging from traditional thinking
  • Includes new info on notion phenomena, colour order, and technological advances
  • Updates fabric on such themes because the CIE colorimetric process and optimum item colors
  • Extends assurance of colour copy to show structures, images, and colour management
  • Contains a special timetable of colour in technological know-how and artwork, plus a word list of vital terms

Praise for the former editions:

"A great bridge to parts frequently now not lined in educational visible technology courses . . . outstanding."
?Joel Pokorny, visible scientist on the collage of Chicago

"A reliable addition to any library, this could be priceless for the colour pursuits of artists, designers, craftsmen, philosophers, psychologists, colour applied sciences, and scholars in comparable fields."

Example text

Surprisingly, the relative number and spatial distribution in the retina of cone cells varies widely among color-normal individuals, with no apparent effect on color vision performance (see Fig. 5; Brainard et al. 2008). This is an indication that normalizations take place in the system at a later stage. Implicit cone sensitivity functions have been measured for the first time with good accuracy in the laboratory of the German physiologist Helmholtz in 1886 (König 1886; see Fig. 10). The absorbance curves have been measured in primates and have been reconstructed from perceptual tests of humans corrected for the average absorption properties of the media in the eye from the cornea to the retina.

However, the signal path and its modifications along the path ultimately resulting in color perceptions are, as mentioned, as yet not known in detail. Opponent cells of certain kinds already exist in cell layers in the retina, followed by others in the brain. But the path is of such complexity that so far it has resisted detailed analysis. Further discussion is found in Chapter 3. Three detectors, in principle, could have resulted in three pairs of chromatic opponent color systems. The fact that we only have two may indicate there was no evolutionarily significant need for further, more detailed discrimination capability, as is presumably available to other species equipped with tetrachromacy or even more kinds of detectors.

There are only approximately 7 million cones and they are located primarily in and near the fovea, the slight indentation in the retina at the end point of the visual axis. Rods are absent in the fovea. When moving away from the fovea, the number of rods first increases sharply and then declines toward the edge of the retina. org). edu, printed with permission). Rods and cones are transducers in which the physical energy of photons is converted to electrochemical energy, manipulated, and passed along the optic nerve deep into the brain.
