The revised Kubelka-Munk theory is examined theoretically and experimentally. Systems of dyed paper sheets are simulated, and the results are compared with other models. The results show that the revised Kubelka-Munk model yields significant errors in predicted dye-paper mixture reflectances, and is not self-consistent. The absorption is noticeably overestimated. Theoretical arguments show that properties in the revised Kubelka-Munk theory are inadequately derived. The main conclusion is that… Expand

Deriving Kubelka-Munk theory from radiative transport.
TLDR
The generalized Kubelka-Munk (gKM) equations are much more accurate at approximating the solution of the RTE and are able to generalize KM theory to take into account general boundary sources and nonhomogeneous terms, for example. Expand

TLDR
The anisotropic reflectance from turbid media predicted using the radiative transfer based DORT2002 model is experimentally verified through goniophotometric measurements to show that relatively more light is reflected at large polar angles when the absorption or illumination angle is increased or when the medium thickness is decreased. Expand
Kubelka-Munk theory for efficient spectral printer modeling
TLDR
The well known Kubelka-Munk theory is used to estimate the spectral reflectances of the Neugebauer Primaries instead of printing and measuring them, and subsequently it is found that this approach achieves not only cheap and less time consuming model establishment, but also improved model precision over the models using the real measurements of the NPs.
