Honoring Prof. Robert M. Boynton

Submitted by CLaudio Oleari, Università di Parma (Italy)

I feel obliged to mention Prof. Robert M. Boynton, who had a very high conception of science. In a short workshop in La Jolla in 2003 he made us understand that every formula is obtained by engineering, but its value lies in its capacity to explain the phenomena and not simply to fit the phenomena. Today this holds true in color science.
