Additive color is a method to create color by mixing a number of different light colors, with shades of red, green, and blue being the most common primary colors used in additive color system.
The barycenter (or barycentre; from the Ancient Greek βαρύς heavy + κέντρον centre) is the center of mass of two or more bodies that are orbiting each other, which is the point around which they both orbit.
Blue is one of the three primary colours of pigments in painting and traditional colour theory, as well as in the RGB colour model.
Chromatic adaptation is the human visual system’s ability to adjust to changes in illumination in order to preserve the appearance of object colors.
The CIE 1931 color spaces were the first defined quantitative links between distributions of wavelengths in the electromagnetic visible spectrum, and physiologically perceived colors in human color vision.
Color (American English) or colour (Commonwealth English) is the characteristic of human visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple.
Color blindness, also known as color vision deficiency, is the decreased ability to see color or differences in color.
In color theory, a color scheme is the choice of colors used in design for a range of media.
A color solid is the three-dimensional representation of a color model, an analog of the two-dimensional color wheel.
In the visual arts, color theory or colour theory is a body of practical guidance to color mixing and the visual effects of a specific color combination.
A colour triangle is an arrangement of colours within a triangle, based on the additive combination of three primary colors at its corners.
Cyan is a greenish-blue color.
Dorian mode or Doric mode can refer to three very different but interrelated subjects: one of the Ancient Greek harmoniai (characteristic melodic behaviour, or the scale structure associated with it), one of the medieval musical modes, or, most commonly, one of the modern modal diatonic scales, corresponding to the white notes from D to D, or any transposition of this.
Karl Ewald Konstantin Hering (5 August 1834 – 26 January 1918) was a German physiologist who did much research into color vision, binocular perception and eye movements.
Green is the color between blue and yellow on the visible spectrum.
Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz (August 31, 1821 – September 8, 1894) was a German physician and physicist who made significant contributions in several scientific fields.
HSL (hue, saturation, lightness) and HSV (hue, saturation, value) are two alternative representations of the RGB color model, designed in the 1970s by computer graphics researchers to more closely align with the way human vision perceives color-making attributes.
Hue is one of the main properties (called color appearance parameters) of a color, defined technically (in the CIECAM02 model), as "the degree to which a stimulus can be described as similar to or different from stimuli that are described as red, green, blue, and yellow", (which in certain theories of color vision are called unique hues).
Sir Isaac Newton (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1726/27) was an English mathematician, astronomer, theologian, author and physicist (described in his own day as a "natural philosopher") who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time, and a key figure in the scientific revolution.
The Ishihara test is a color perception test for red-green color deficiencies, the first in a class of successful color vision tests called pseudo-isochromatic plates ("PIP").
James Clerk Maxwell (13 June 1831 – 5 November 1879) was a Scottish scientist in the field of mathematical physics.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832) was a German writer and statesman.
Magenta is a color that is variously defined as purplish-red, reddish-purple, purplish, or mauvish-crimson.
In colorimetry, metamerism is a perceived matching of the colors with different (nonmatching) spectral power distributions.
Neil Harbisson (born 27 July 1984) is a Catalan-raised, Northern Irish-born cyborg artist and transpecies activist based in New York City.
In music, an octave (octavus: eighth) or perfect octave is the interval between one musical pitch and another with half or double its frequency.
The color opponent process is a color theory that states that the human visual system interprets information about color by processing signals from cones and rods in an antagonistic manner.
A set of primary colors is, most tangibly, a set of real colorants or colored lights that can be combined in varying amounts to produce a gamut of colors.
Psychophysics quantitatively investigates the relationship between physical stimuli and the sensations and perceptions they produce.
The public domain consists of all the creative works to which no exclusive intellectual property rights apply.
Purple is a color intermediate between blue and red.
Red is the color at the end of the visible spectrum of light, next to orange and opposite violet.
The RGB color model is an additive color model in which red, green and blue light are added together in various ways to reproduce a broad array of colors.
A RGB color space is any additive color space based on the RGB color model.
RYB (an abbreviation of red–yellow–blue) is a historical set of colors used in subtractive color mixing and is one commonly used set of primary colors.
A secondary color is a color made by mixing two primary colors in a given color space.
A spectral color is a color that is evoked in a normal human by a single wavelength of light in the visible spectrum, or by a relatively narrow band of wavelengths, also known as monochromatic light.
A tertiary color is a color made by mixing full saturation of one primary color with half saturation of another primary color and none of a third primary color, in a given color space such as RGB, CMYK (more modern) or RYB (traditional).
The Championships, Wimbledon, commonly known simply as Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and is widely regarded as the most prestigious.
The Public Domain Review is an online journal, a project of the Open Knowledge Foundation, showcasing works which have entered the public domain.
Theory of Colours (German: Zur Farbenlehre) is a book by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about the poet's views on the nature of colours and how these are perceived by humans.
Thomas Young FRS (13 June 1773 – 10 May 1829) was a British polymath and physician.
Violet is the color at the end of the visible spectrum of light between blue and the invisible ultraviolet.
