Abstract

Recently there has been great interest in establishing the color gamut of solid colors or the optimum colors. The optimum colors are widely used for quantifying the quality of light sources and evaluating reproduction devices. An enumeration method was developed by Martinez-Verdu et al. [J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 24, 1501 (2007)] for finding optimum colors. However, it was found that the method is too time-costly. In this paper, a linear programming approach is proposed. The proposed method is simple and faster and has the advantage of keeping the characteristics of the true boundary. Comparison of the present method with the method of Martinez-Verdu et al. is also given.
