Computational Colour Science using MATLAB offers a practical, problem-based approach to colour physics. The book focuses on the key issues encountered in modern colour engineering, including efficient representation of colour information, fourier analysis of reflectance spectra and advanced colorimetric computation. Emphasis is placed on the practical applications rather than the techniques themselves, with material structured around key topics. These topics include, colour calibration of visual displays, computer recipe prediction and models for colour-appearance prediction.
Each topic is carefully introduced at three levels to enhance student understanding. Firstly, theoretical ideas and background information are discussed, explanations of mathematical solutions then follow and finally practical solutions are presented using MATLAB.
includes a compendium of equations and numerical data required by the modern colour and imaging scientist.
numerous examples of solutions and algorithms for a wide-range of computational problems in colour science.
provides example scripts using the MATLAB programming language.
An invaluable resource for students taking courses in colour science, colour chemistry and colour physics as well as technicians and researchers working in the area. This book will also be a useful reference for professionals and researchers working in related industries.
Any Way You Slice It: The Past, Present, and Future of Rationing
Rationing: it’s a wordÂand ideaÂthat people often loathe and fear. Health care expert Henry Aaron has compared mentioning the possibility of rationing to Âshouting an obscenity in church.” Yet societies in fact ration food, water, medical care, and fuel all the time, with those who can pay the most getting the most. As...

The reader is given enough information and references … . this book will provide an excellent background on fuzzy logic and how it can be applied to a variety of spatial problems. It is also a valuable information... Hypochondriasis: Modern Perspectives on an Ancient Malady Hypochondriasis remains controversial, despite its 2000-year history. Although it is considered a mental disorder, hypochondriasis is often regarded as a defense mechanism, peculiar cognitive/ perceptual style, means of nonverbal communication, response to stress, abnormal illness behavior, personality trait, distinct personality disturbance, and...
Klimt (Mega Square Collection)
Gustav Klimt first made himself known by the decorations he executed (with his brother and their art school companion F. Matsch), for numerous theatres and above all (on his own this time) for the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, where he completed, in a coolly photographic style, the work begun by Makart. At the age of thirty he moved into... A Systemic Perspective on Cognition and Mathematics
This book is devoted to the study of human thought, its systemic structure, and the historical development of mathematics both as a product of thought and as a fascinating case analysis. After demonstrating that systems research constitutes the second dimension of modern science, the monograph discusses the yoyo model, a recent...
