We have seen that the mathematical model appropriate for the representation of spectral color space is a finite-dimensional vector space. A representation space is associated with every physical color system, be it a receptor or an emitter. A receptor samples the spectral distribution function of the incident light, while an emitter performs color reconstruction by combining the elements of its basis of primary colors, which generate the emitter’s color space.
