According to D. M. MacKay, “Quantal aspects of scientific information,” Phil. Mag. 41, 289 (1950), each scientific measurement (such as holographic detection of optical fields) a priori defines the discrete set of so-called degrees of freedom (they determine the structural information capacity), which are a posteriori connected with a discrete and limited set of the total numbers that result from the experiment. All the configurations of these numbers (signal-to-noise ratio included) define the metric information.

Note that if |cos 2γ/cos Φ| > 1 and |tan Φ/tan 2γ| > 1, then the arccos {·} are treated as complex functions, so α1 and α2 equal 0 or π, depending on the sign of the argument of a given arccos function.

In the 3D case, the problem of the scattering of a plane wave incident upon an arbitrary phase structure was solved in the weak diffraction approximation (first Born approximation) by Wolf17; see also Ref. 12.

Analogously, in color holography, the radii of the Ewald circles (or Ewald spheres, in the 3D case) are different for different colors and equal rm′=2πnm′/λ0m, where λ0m is a wavelength in vacuum corresponding to the m th color and nm′=n˙m′(λ0m) is the photosensitive material refractive index for the m th color.

See, for example, D. Marcuse, Light Transmission Optics (Van Nostrand, New York, 1972), Chap. I.

It should be noted that the resolution power of a Fourier transformer may be characterized by the typical parameter 1/Δfx, where Δfx is the minimal resolution interval in the 1D object Fourier space, so that ρ is connected with this parameter only by the relation ρ= (λ1dFΔfx)−1(thus Δfx= 2/T).
