Paper Abstract

Knowing the fundamental or ultimate limits enables holographers to avoid attempting impossible tasks while pushing close to the optimum. We offer here some preliminary observations on diffraction limits, throughput limits, and brightness limits. We then offer two new theorems on angular and spectral resolution.
