Illuminant estimation as cue combination

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This work briefly describes a model for illuminant estimation based on combination of candidate illuminant cues. Many of the research issues concerning cue combination in depth and shape perception translate well to the study of surface color perception. I describe and illustrate a particular experimental approach (perturbation analysis) employed in the study of depth and shape that is useful in determining whether hypothetical illuminant cues are actually used in color vision.
