Two steps
• Translate center to (0, 0, 0)
– Move x by –(xmax + xmin) / 2 • Scale volume to cube with sides = 2
– Scale x by 2/(xmax – xmin) • Compose these transformation

vision. Here we step away from the code and math for a
bit to talk about basic principles.

Three types of cones:

• M or G, most sensitive to green light (560 nm)
• S or B, most sensitive to blue light (430 nm) • Color blindness results from missing cone type(s) Physiology of Vision: The Retina

Color perception is also difficult because:
• It varies from person to person
• It is affected by adaptation (stare at a light bulb… don’t)
• It is affected by surrounding color: Perception: Relative Intensity
We are not good at judging absolute intensity
Let’s illuminate pixels with white light on scale of 0  1.0
Intensity difference of neighboring colored rectangles
Intensity
with intensities:
with 0.10 > 0.11 (10% change) 0.50 > 0.55 (10% change)

We perceive relative intensities, not absolute

How do we represent 256 shades of gray? Representing Intensities
Equal distribution between min and max fails
• relative change near max is much smaller than near I0
• Ex: ¼, ½, ¾, 1 Preserve % change
• Ex: 1/8, ¼, ½, 1
• In = I0 * rnI0, n > 0 I0=I0
I 1 = rI 0
