Interpolation methods may be necessary to obtain the illuminant data at 5-nm intervals. Interpolation methods are now brieﬂy discussed before alternative methods for computing tristimulus values are described. A line can be drawn to ﬁt exactly through any two points, a parabola through any three points, and an nth-degree polynomial through any n+1 points. Thus, if there are measurements of reﬂectance P(l) at n wavelengths an arbitrary (nÀ1)th-degree polynomial PðlÞ ¼ a1 lnÀ1 þ a2 lnÀ2 þ : : : þ anÀ1 l þ an ð4:3Þ that has n coeﬃcients can be speciﬁed by the n independent relations.
For practical applications, the required data are often not available in an appropriate format because of abridgement (measurement at intervals greater than 5 nm) or truncation (omission of the data at the spectral extremes). Many modern reﬂectance spectrophotometers, for example, provide data at 10-nm intervals in the range 400–700 nm. For situations where the spectral data are abridged or INTERPOLATION METHODS 29 truncated, the CIE recommends the use of interpolation and extrapolation, respectively (CIE, 1986b).
The user may save the current list of variables and their associated values using the save command. mat, for example, will save the workspace as a special MATLAB file and this may be recovered during a new session using the load command. The command clear will remove all user-defined variables from the workspace. The format of displayed numbers during a session can be changed using the format command. Finally, it is important to note that MATLAB is case sensitive. 2 Computing the transpose and inverse of matrices A matrix may be easily transposed in MATLAB using the ’ operator.
