Understanding Holography

By Wenyon, Michael

David & Charles, 1980. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 5.5" X 8.75. H/B 176 pages, condition is very good. 2nd impression. In a remarkably short space of time holography has been transformed from a science of the future into a science of the present, and everything seems to indicate that, with equal rapidity, its applications will become an everyday part of our lives. However, although we may admire holograms and be fascinated by the fidelity of their representations of natural or even quite impossible objects, we generally have very little understanding of how they work or even why they work. In Understanding Holography Michael Wenyon describes the art of holography in lucid and entertaining fashion for the general reader and the non-specialist. He begins by discussing the basic properties of light and the working and uses of the laser, and then moves on to explain how holography works and to show the ways in which it differs radically from photography, not only because holographic images are truly three-dimensional but also in terms of the underlying physical processes involved. He describes the fascinating properties of holography and of the holograms themselves, while remembering also the limitations and restrictions of the process. After an explanation of the different types of holograms - the ways in which they work and what they can be used to achieve - he discusses their uses in fine art, in advertising and in education, and takes a look into the future at such developments as X-ray holograms, for use in medical diagnosis, and holographic telephones, particularly useful for international conferences since delegates would not have to leave their own countries. He describes many intriguing applications of holography which have allowed it to serve as a useful tool for scientists and engineers in such diverse fields as non-destructive testing and computer memories. The final chapter of the book gives detailed explanations of how the amateur can produce holograms simply, in his own home, for about the same cost as a high-quality camera system. This is an absorbing and even exciting book, treating, as it does, a subject which cannot fail to have the most profound effect in all areas of man's endeavours, in the arts as in the sciences, in commerce, industry, entertainment and even in crime and its prevention.

General Equilibrium Theory : An Introduction

General Equilibrium Theory : An Introduction

By Starr, Ross M.

UK: Cambridge, 1997. Hardcover. New/No Jacket. New. Book is sealed in plastic. "Ross Starr has performed a major service in preparing his introductory and yet fully self-contained textbook on general equilibrium theory. His graceful yet rigorous exposition will provide the student with a full coverage of the basic issues. The learning process is enhanced by the excellent and stimulating exercises." - Kenneth J. Arrow, Stanford University "This slim volume contains all that a newcomer to general equilibrium theory can be expected to learn. The exposition is simple and clear without sacrifice of rigor." - Frank Hahn, University of Cambridge and University of Siena "Ross Starr's well-organized, rigorous introduction to the theory of general equilibrium serves as a useful handbook for those specializing in mathematical economics as well as an elementary textbook for students." - Hirofumi Uzawa, Research Center on Global Warming, Japan Development Bank General Equilibrium Theory: An Introduction treats the classic Arrow-Debreu general equilibrium model in a form accessible to graduate students and advanced undergraduates in economics and mathematics. Topics covered include mathematical preliminaries, the household and firm, existence of general equilibrium, Pareto efficiency of general equilibrium, the First and Second Fundamental Theorems of Welfare Economics, the core and core convergence, futures markets over time, and contingent commodity markets under uncertainty. Demand, supply, and excess demand appear first as (point-valued) functions, then optionally as (set-valued) correspondences. The mathematics presented (with elementary proofs of the theorems) includes real analysis, the Brouwer Fixed-Point Theorem, and separating and supporting hyperplane theorems. The treatment emphasizes clarity and accessibility to the student through use of examples and intuition. Ross M. Starr is Professor of Economics at the University of California, San Diego. He has also taught at the London School of Economics, Yale University, and the People's University of China, Beijing. Professor Starr is the editor of General Equilibrium Models of Monetary Economies (1989) and coeditor of the three-volume Essays in Honor of Kenneth Arrow (Cambridge University Press, 1986). His articles have appeared in Econometrica, Economic Theory, Journal of Econom ic Theory, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking, Quarterly Journal of Economics, and Review of Economic Studies.
