The theory of statistical fluctuations has been applied to fitting Munsell data for nearly neutral specimens. This leads to a form of hyperbolic cosine law for lightness value expressed as a function of luminous reflectance. An inverse relationship can be readily obtained in terms of standard mathematical functions. Account is taken of the effects of adaptation.
