Create polarLUV Colors

Description

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

Usage

1
polarLUV(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 polarLUV space is a transformation of the CIE L*u*u* space so that the u and u values are converted to polar coordinates. The radial component C measures chroma and the angular coordinate H is measures hue.

Value

An object of class “polarLUV” which inherits from class “color.”
