Abstract

A linear-programming technique is used to design examples of spectral power distributions of illuminants that, when irradiating a limited number of given objects, render these objects in prescribed colors. The numerical examples that demonstrate the technique are relevant to problems of designing light sources having a perfect color rendering index, or a high flattery index.
