This chapter describes procedure for evaluating the range of excitation in one observer's colour matching space generated by the set of metamers from a different observer's space. The approach lends itself to visualizing the results geometrically, which is helpful in generating intuitions about multi-dimensional problems.

Keywords:   excitation, colour matching, colour space, metamers
