A regularized approach to color constancy

J. Rubner, K. Schulten

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Color constancy is the ability of color perception independent of the spectrum of the ambient illumination. We present an algorithm that makes use of biologically plausible assumptions concerning the spectra of illumination and surface reflectance in order to solve the undetermined problem of color constancy. We test the proposed algorithm by means of computer simulations and examine its range of performance.
