The Physiological Colour System (PCS) is an approach towards a uniform colour system. The PCS is based on cone excitations as calculated by the Naka–Rushton relation. This chapter shows that the PCS has a certain degree of uniformity as demonstrated by computed wavelength discrimination curves and MacAdam ellipses.

Keywords:   Physiological Colour System, uniform colour system, Naka–Rushton relation, wavelength discrimination, MacAdam ellipses
