Kuehni devotes much of his study to geometric, three-dimensional arrangements of color experiences, a type of system developed only in the mid-nineteenth century. Color spaces are of particular interest for color quality-control purposes in the manufacturing and graphics industries. The author analyzes three major color order systems in detail: Munsell, OSA-UCS, and NCS. He presents historical and current information on color space developments in color vision, psychology, psychophysics, and color technology. Chapter topics include:
A historical account of color order systems
Fundamentals of psychophysics and the relationship between stimuli and experience
Results of perceptual scaling of colors according to attributes
History of the development of mathematical color space and difference formulas
Analysis of the agreements and discrepancies in psychophysical data describing color differences
An experimental plan for the reliable, replicated perceptual data necessary to make progress in the field
Experts in academia and industry, neuroscientists, designers, art historians, and anyone interested in the nature of color will find Color Space and Its Divisions to be the authoritative reference in its field.
