*CIE* :math:`\epsilon` constant.

CIE_E : numeric

Notes
-----
-   The original *CIE* value for :math:`\epsilon` is :math:`\epsilon=0.008856`,
    Lindbloom (2003) has shown that this value is causing a discontinuity
    at the junction point of the two functions grafted together to create the
    *Lightness* :math:`L^*` function.

    That discontinuity can be avoided by using the rational representation as
    follows: :math:`\epsilon=216\ /\ 24389`.
