  1. Color is defined as a psychophysical quantity in the report of the Committee on Colorimetry now in preparation. In this series of papers on the Munsell Color System, the psychological definition of color given in the 1922 report (J. Opt. Soc. Am. 6, 531 (1922)) has, therefore, been superseded by a psychophysical definition.
