Halftone Color: Diffusion of Light within Paper
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.1998.6.1.art00039  Published OnlineJanuary 1998

The diffusion of light within paper can affect the color of a halftone print, an effect known as optical dot gain or the Yule-Neilson effect. A theory is presented that allows one to determine the tristimulus values of a halftone color in terms of the halftone microstructure including the effects of light diffusion. The formula presented is a generalization of the Neugebauer equations.
