A fundamental problem in color image processing is the integration of the physical laws of light reflection into image processing results, the probem known as photometric invariance. The derivation of object properties from color images yields the extraction of geometric and photometric invariants from color images. Photometric invariance is to be derived from the physics of refelection. In this paper, we rehearse the results from radiative transfer theory to model the reflection and transmission of light in colored layers. We concentrate on the Kubelka-Munk theory of colored layers, which is posed as a general model for color image formation. The model is used for decades in the painting and printing industrie, and is proven to be valid for a wide range of materials. We relate the Kubelka-Munk is proven valid may be inherited to algorithms based on newer models. Furthermore, photometric invarariant properties proven for one model are, by using Kubelka-Munk, easily extended to related models.
