Abstract

This work continues previous research by the same authors [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 23, 2077 (2006) ], where empirical small–medium color differences were represented by an ellipsoidal equation Δ E GP in the Uniform Color System of the Optical Society of America. Now logarithmic compressions on chroma and lightness are introduced to produce a new space with Euclidean color-difference formulas Δ E E . The CIEDE2000, Δ E GP , and Δ E E formulas are found statistically equivalent in the prediction of many available empirical datasets. However, Δ E E is the simplest formula providing relationships with visual processing. These analyses hold true for CIE 1964 Supplementary Standard Observer and D65 illuminant.
