The paper proposes a novel approach to analyze the dichromatic color vision defects from a point of spectral responses based on the projection theory of spectral space to/from 2-D dichromatic Human Visual Sub-Space. The visible spectra to the dichromats (protanopes, deutanopes, and tritanopes) are extracted from an n-dimensional spectral input with the 2-D version of Matrix-R notated as R dichro. Since the matrix R dichro is an identical and invariant mapping operator inherent in human vision that is independent of any linear transformation or any illuminant, the fundamental spectra C*dichro sensed with matrix R dichro are also inherent in the dichromats. The lost spectra are easily obtained as a difference in the fundamentals between the normals and the the dichromats. These lost spectral profiles tell us why the color appearances are similar to the protanopes and deutanopes, and dissimilar to the tritanopes. The perceived colors are simulated based on the two hypotheses of substitution and nulling processes.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
