Last weekend and this week have been interesting but not too interesting. (Too interesting can be bad.)
As I moved on to writing up “universal generalization”, “universal instantiation”, and such things, I seem to have discovered that none of my books has a really good explanation.
Maybe that’s okay. I wasn’t planning on doing them rigorously — merely identifying them and showing a couple of the dangerous curves while using them… working at the level of Hummel and Exner. We’ll see whether I can sort it all out to my satisfaction and have a post ready for final edit Monday evening.
Still, I’m shocked that my library let me down.
I made some progress in Fairchild’s “color appearance models”. In addition, my freshly ordered copy of Kang’s “computational color technology” arrived… and I found time to read through it. I bought it because it uses Cohen’s approach, and it discusses the reconstruction of spectra from tristimulus values. It is very likely that I will be talking about Fairchild, and likely that I will be talking about Kang.
I also found time to work out explicitly x,y as functions of Y assuming that X and Z are held constant while Y varies. You can find it in this comment, but there aren’t any pictures.
If I decide that I probably can’t get a logic post ready this weekend, I might be able to do a color post about my monitor; that will illustrate properties of other monitors.
