    3D affine transformation question

    I have an application that I am building that requires an affine transformation between two vector spaces. I am using the CIE 1931 xyY

    CIE 1931 color space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    color space as the starting point for two color spaces. I transform both color spaces to XYZ space (a true vector space). At this point, I would like to apply an affine transformation to map one space onto the other.

    My question is, when I get to the point where I am solving the affine transformation matrix (a 4X4) matrix, how can I constrain the equations given only the three points of the vector space? Do I simply use a 4th point?

    The matrix eqations take the form of the image below:

    Just to be clear...I know the vectors...I need the values in the matrix.

    Given that the two vector spaces start from the origin of coordinates in the XYZ space...I believe I can eliminate translation and simply solve for a 3X3 transformation matrix...is this accurate? Both spaces are contained within the gamut of color visible to humans...this would place constraints on all color spaces..thus the conclusion I can rule out translations.
