    I'm saying you decide what color is closest to your concept of magenta on the spectrum, and say that's he wavelength. But you might be asking a different question: is there some sort of standard definition of magenta? Then the best thing to do is use a Pantone color: Pantone has a large number of standardized colors.

    I am alluding to the fact that magenta light is not monochromatic

    Ok, so basically you want to know its Fourier transform.

    Magenta is Red AND Blue, so i guess it has two wavelengths
