The interest in the spatial statistics of the signal encoded by the eye motivated us to assemble and distribute software for calculating the retinal irradiance and cone absorptions of scene radiance. We hope that this simulation will provide a more realistic approximation of the statistical properties encoded by the nervous system. The statistics of the retinal irradiance image is significantly different from the scene radiance, and the cone absorption properties add further complexity. By making it simple to account for optical and retinal factors, we hope to enable new experimentation and insights
