Question: WaveLengthtoColor problem

When assigning a color to a given wave length I initially used ColorTools WavelengthToColor. Acer commented that this wasn't the most accurate. I looked into this a little further and it seems there could be a better result. The attached document compares some different ways of assigning colors to wave lengths. 

Warning- The CIEDE2000 computation for deltaE is very slow. I think this is because of the hue angle calculations which use piecewise a lot. The CIE94 delta E method produces nearly the same result and takes minutes instead of hours.



 I think I could speed up my calculation if I could find the position of the minimum element of an Array similar to FindMinimalElement of a list. 

I created my own atan2 function (similar to Excel). If there were a built in Maple equivalent perhaps it would be faster? I didn't see any such function.
