PCSF: Computes Data for Color Vision Modelling

The program PCSF uses published mathematical equations which approximate color sensitivity functions for computing data for simulations of color vision. It can compute tables of receptor absorptions, ocular media density, fundamental response and color matching functions, and chromaticity coordinates. It also may be used to evaluate spectral radiance data with respect to these sensitivity functions. The source code is available and may easily be incorporated into other programs.
