Color Theory

I’m reposting my article on Color Theory from the summer of 2003.

My goal is to make it into a short (1 -2 week) course on color theory for non-physics/physiology/cognative perception majors. Ideally this would be taught in the second or third year of college. It covers history, physiology, linear algebra, photography, photoshop channel mixing, and of course colorblindness.

Thanks to the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, which helped me resurrect my old website, but also provides links to reference pages that are no longer in existence.

Although I will be cleaning this up over time, here is the original content (collected into a single document) of my Color Theory for Dichromats.
