### Notes

The CIE (2012) 10-deg
“physiologically-relevant” , , and chromaticity
coordinates are related to the CIE (2012) 10-deg , and CMFs by:

where, , and are the chromaticity
coordinates, and , and are the
CMFs.

The , and CMFs are linear
transformations of the cone fundamentals according to:

where , and are the Stockman & Sharpe
(2000) or CIE (2006) 10-deg cone fundamentals tabulated here.

The proposed CIE standard is also much concerned about
defining the precision of the CMFs. Thus, the coefficients of the
transformation are defined to 8 decimal places (as in the equations above), the
CMFs themselves are calculated from the cone fundamentals given in linear (energy) units
to 9 sf (given here), and the
results in linear (energy) units are tabulated to 7 significant figures. Finally, the chromaticity coordinates are defined to 5 dp.

The functions are provided here at 0.1, 1
and 5 nm steps.

Please note that these are proposals that have yet to be
ratified by the full TC 1-36 committee or the CIE.
