Frequently Bought Together
From the Publisher
Deals with all phases of light, color, and color vision. Provides comprehensive data, formulae, concepts, and procedures needed in basic and applied research in color vision, colorimetry, and photometry. Includes new and expanded material on the latest advances in color science, particularly in color matching, increment-threshold work, chromatic adaption, and the theoretical modelling of color discrimination and other color-vision phenomena. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Inside Flap
Since its original publication fifteen years ago, this valuable compendium has established itself as the most comprehensive source of information on the physical data required for both basic and applied research in color science. Now revised and expanded to reflect the state of the art, Color Science, Second Edition brings together the essential quantitative tools of the science of colorfrom concepts and methods to data and formulae. Here in one source is: details of color filters, light sources, monochromators, and photon detectors indepth accounts of the working concepts in color matching, color discrimination, and chromatic adaptation logical presentations of the mathematical algorithms used in the development of these concepts as well as tabular presentations of the data and formulae that have gained acceptance as the standards for color calculations. This new edition has been updated to recognize the tremendous advances that have occurred in the field in recent years. Youll find up-to-date coverage of color matching, increment-threshold work, chromatic adaptation, and the theoretical modelling of color discrimination and other color-vision phenomena. In addition, the extensive treatment of trichromatic principles and their application has now been expanded to include Maxwells method of trichromatic matching. A valuable working reference for the researcher in color vision, colorimetry, and photometrywhether physicist, physiologist, or psychologist-and for those concerned with color problems in industry, Color Science, Second Edition will also prove helpful to graduate students in psychology, engineering physics, and illuminating engineering. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Top Customer Reviews
Bottom line is that it's a great reference book for detailed, mathemetical views of Color Science topics. It's not a very good book to read for general information or an overview on color science. I'd highly recommend "Principles of Color Technology" by Roy Berns as a good all-around 1st book on color science. Much easier and more enjoyable to read. The Wyszecki & Stiles is more of a reference book if you need the next level of detail after that.

Ok, not new, but the only one in it's class that goes so deep into the subject.
Answers all the things the others don't even mention.
Worth every cent. Read more
This is probably not a good "first book" in color science. However, if you do have knowledge of the field (or are taking a class in it) then it can be a very good reference.Published on April 1, 2009 by Samuel P. Subbarao
The book is very complet, but a little difficult. It's the bible of colorimetry!!!Published on August 13, 2005 by Bossini Gianni
