colour.temperature.xy_to_CCT_Kang2002#

colour.temperature.xy_to_CCT_Kang2002(xy: ArrayLike, optimisation_kwargs: Optional[Dict] = None) FloatingOrNDArray[source]#

Return the correlated colour temperature \(T_{cp}\) from given CIE xy chromaticity coordinates using Kang et al. (2002) method.

Parameters:
Returns:

Correlated colour temperature \(T_{cp}\).

Return type:

numpy.floating or numpy.ndarray

Warning

Kang et al. (2002) does not give an analytical inverse transformation to compute the correlated colour temperature \(T_{cp}\) from given CIE xy chromaticity coordinates, the current implementation relies on optimization using scipy.optimize.minimize() definition and thus has reduced precision and poor performance.
