Computer graphics is largely concerned with the creation and display of images on a display device. Color display devices support images with very high resolution and dynamic range. As the power of the display devices increases, and the color capacities become more sophisticated, attention to the principles of color science becomes increasingly important. These principles can be applied to many aspects of computer graphics to improve the appearance and correctness of displayed images. This thesis presents a nuhber of new algorithms in computer graphics; algorithms concerned with display or manipulation of color images. New algorithms are presented which optimally approximate the display of colors which the technotogy cannot recreate, which quickly translate between one color system and another, which simulqte the subtractive mixture of filters and dyes, and which simulate the pigmentary mixture of paints.
