colour.colorimetry.luminance_Fairchild2011

colour.colorimetry.luminance_Fairchild2011(L_hdr, epsilon=0.474, method='hdr-CIELAB')[source]

Computes luminance \(Y\) of given Lightness \(L_{hdr}\) using Fairchild and Chen (2011) method according to Michaelis-Menten kinetics.

Parameters
  • L_hdr (array_like) – Lightness \(L_{hdr}\).

  • epsilon (numeric or array_like, optional) – \(\epsilon\) exponent.

  • method (str, optional) – {‘hdr-CIELAB’, ‘hdr-IPT’}, Lightness \(L_{hdr}\) computation method.

Returns

luminance \(Y\).

Return type
