Neugebauer Equations

A set of three equations that are used in color proofing to predict the red, green, and blue reflectances that are likely to result from printed halftone dots. The Neugebauer equations are based on the specific dot sizes used to make a particular reproduction, and are extraordinarily complicated to solve, and even then require more trial and error than anything. However, new computer models and software packages are replacing such trial-and-error methods.
