3D visualization (IMAGE) DOE/Los Alamos National Laboratory Caption This visualization captures the 3D mathematical space used to map human color perception. A new mathematical representation has found that the line segments representing the distance between widely separated colors don't add up correctly using the previously accepted geometry. The research contradicts long-held assumptions and will improve a variety of practical applications of color theory. Credit Los Alamos National Laboratory. Usage Restrictions No restrictions.
