A mathematical analysis is made of Land's recent experiments which showed that fully colored pictures can be produced by a two-color projection system. Although Land's results apparently had been at variance with the classical theories of color perception, it has now been found possible to explain the experiments within the framework of those theories and in conjunction with well-known phenomena in the field of experimental psychology. The results are interpreted in terms of a mechanism of color transformation.
