Besides including chapters developed from the workshop contributions, they have commissioned further chapters to round out the presentation and complete the coverage of relevant subareas. This handy reference book is organized in five parts, each consisting of several coherent chapters using consistent terminology. The work starts with a general introduction and each part opens with an introduction by the volume editors. A comprehensive subject index allows easy access to individual topics. The book is a gold mine not only for professionals and researchers in the area of neural information processing, but also for newcomers to the field.

This book provides the reader with an understanding of what color is, where color comes from, and how color can be used correctly in many different applications. The authors first treat the physics of light and its interaction with matter at the atomic level, so that the origins of color can be appreciated. The intimate relationship between energy levels, orbital states, and electromagnetic waves helps to explain why diamonds shimmer, rubies are red, and the feathers of the Blue Jay are blue. Then, color theory is explained from its origin to the current state of the art, including image capture and display as well as the practical use of color in disciplines such as computer graphics, computer vision, photography, and film.
