The general theories of single-and double-exposure polarization holography in Jones calculus, Mueller calculus, coherence calculus, Poincare sphere, and the geometric meaning method can be introduced into the problems of polarization holography. From the results obtained, we offer an interpretation of the reference light in polarization holography.
