        For most modern Cathode-Ray Tube monitors (CRTs), the following
        are good estimates of the RGB->LMS and LMS->RGB transform
        matrices.  They are based on spectra measured on a typical CRT
        with a PhotoResearch PR650 spectral photometer and the Stockman
        human cone fundamentals. NOTE: these estimates will NOT work well
        for LCDs!
        The RGB<->LMS transforms are computed from the human cone
        photo-pigment absorption spectra and the monitor phosphor
        emission spectra. These parameters are fairly constant for most
        humans and most montiors (at least for modern CRTs). However,
        gamma will vary quite a bit, as it is a property of the monitor
        (eg. amplifier gain), the video card, and even the
        software. Further, users can adjust their gammas (either via
        adjusting the monitor amp gains or in software). That said, the
        following are the gamma estimates that we have used in the
        Vischeck code. Many colorblind users have viewed our simulations
        and told us that they "work" (simulated and original images are
