Description

This function creates colors of class “polarLAB”; a subclass of the virtual color-class class.

Usage

1
polarLAB(L, C, H, names)

Arguments

L, C, H

these arguments give the L, C and H coordinates of the colors. The values can be provided in separate L, C and H vectors or in a three-column matrix passed as L.

names

A vector of names for the colors (by default the row names of L are used).

Details

The polarLAB space is a transformation of the CIE L*a*b* space so that the a and b values are converted to polar coordinates. The radial component C measures chroma and the angular coordinate H is measures hue.
