Abstract

The theory of halftone printing has attracted the attention of both industry and scientists for decades. The Yule–Nielsen equation has been used for color prediction for more than fifty years now, but apparently the tuning parameter n has been taken to be only larger than or equal to one. Our paper shows that the extension to the whole real axis is well defined in a mathematical sense. We fitted models to data from the ceramics tile printing sector (Rotocolor and Kerajet printing techniques) and found that using a negative n in almost all considered cases resulted in a better fit.
