Metameric color matches depend on the observer’s color matching functions. Data were collected on observer variability in typical metameric matches. A Monte Carlo simulation, using a model of color matching functions and physiological data, was performed to derive a complete colorimetric system capable of predicting inter-observer variability in addition to mean color matches.
