Abstract

The perception of an unchanging surface color under different illuminations requires the computation of the scene-illuminant color either directly or indirectly. A possible source for the computation is the specular highlight of the surface reflection. Some issues related to color constancy are discussed, and a theory for computing the scene-illuminant chromaticity from specular highlight is described. An interesting result of the theory is that in an ideal situation, two surfaces of different colors will be sufficient for the computation.
