The Michelson contrast[1] is commonly used for patterns where both bright and dark features are equivalent and take up similar fractions of the area. The Michelson contrast is defined as

 
\frac{I_\mathrm{max}-I_\mathrm{min}}{I_\mathrm{max}+I_\mathrm{min}},

with  I_\mathrm{max} and  I_\mathrm{min} representing the highest and lowest luminance. The denominator represents twice the average of the luminance.
