Color perception math is wrong
« on: August 13, 2022, 09:51:18 am »

A new study corrects an important error in the 3D mathematical space developed by the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Erwin Schrödinger and others, and used by scientists and industry for more than 100 years to describe how your eye distinguishes one color from another. The research has the potential to boost scientific data visualizations, improve TVs and recalibrate the textile and paint industries.

Dogs have masters, cats have staff.
Not sure about imaginary cats but I suppose they do too.  ;)

I wonder if this is another case of a disconnect between physicists and color scientists.

From a color science perspective I think it's well understood that any "uniform" perceptual space is at best an approximation. There are too many interacting visual perception phenomena for it to be anything else.
