# colour.models.exponent_function_monitor_curve¶

colour.models.exponent_function_monitor_curve(x: FloatingOrArrayLike, exponent: FloatingOrArrayLike = 1, offset: FloatingOrArrayLike = 0, style: Union[Literal['monCurveFwd', 'monCurveRev', 'monCurveMirrorFwd', 'monCurveMirrorRev'], str] = 'monCurveFwd') FloatingOrNDArray[source]

Define the Monitor Curve exponent transfer function.

Parameters
• x (FloatingOrArrayLike) – Data to undergo the monitor curve exponential conversion.

• exponent (FloatingOrArrayLike) – Exponent value used for the conversion.

• offset (FloatingOrArrayLike) – Offset value used for the conversion.

• style (Union[Literal['monCurveFwd', 'monCurveRev', 'monCurveMirrorFwd', 'monCurveMirrorRev'], str]) –

Defines the behaviour for the transfer function to operate:

• monCurveFwd: Monitor Curve Forward exponential behaviour where the definition applies a power law function with a linear segment near the origin.

• monCurveRev: Monitor Curve Reverse exponential behaviour where the definition applies a power law function with a linear segment near the origin.

• monCurveMirrorFwd: Monitor Curve Mirror Forward exponential behaviour where the definition applies a power law function with a linear segment near the origin and mirrors the function for values less than zero (i.e. rotationally symmetric around the origin).

• monCurveMirrorRev: Monitor Curve Mirror Reverse exponential behaviour where the definition applies a power law function with a linear segment near the origin and mirrors the function for values less than zero (i.e. rotationally symmetric around the origin).

Returns

Exponentially converted data.

Return type
