CIE 015:2004 Colorimetry, 3rd edition
: Brown Technical Book Store
This publication, which replaces CIE Publication 15.2 (and is not to be known as 15.3!), includes details of the CIE DE2000 colour difference equation; spectral power distributions for sets of halophosphate lamps, DeLuxe type lamps, three-band lamps, multi-band lamps, high pressure sodium lamps and high pressure metal halide lamps. The nomenclature for the recommended geometries has changed, and there are even changes to the equations defining the parameters of the CIELAB colour space! The publication is accompanied by CD-ROM (for the Print Edition) that contains all the tables of standard and recommended spectral distributions and a program (for Windows operation systems) to perform interpolation of spectra related to reflection or absorption measurements. Thus this publication represents the colorimetric state-of-the-art and should find a place on the bookshelf of every colour scientist.
