**Holographic Interferometry in Experimental Mechanics**

This monograph offers with assorted functions of holographic interferome test in experimental good mechanics. Holographic interferometry has skilled a improvement of 20 years. It has loved good fortune and suffered a few disappointments generally as a result of early overestimation of its capability. at this time, improvement of holo photo interferometry is progressing basically as a strategy for quantita tive measurements.

Similar conclusions can be reached for the case n = 1 and r > 2. The case n > 1, r = 2 is not trivial. , d oL aL - dt aqk + al a2 L . ) a2 L aL i~1 oqk aqi ij' + oqk oqi q' - aqk at + aqk n = - ( = F k(t, q, q, ij), k = 1, 2, ... , again the function L. As a result, the system is overdetermined and a solution in this case does not necessarily exist despite continuity and regularity assumptions. A similar situation occurs for n > 1 and r > 2. 29) were apparently formulated for the first time by Helmholtz (1887)26 on quite remarkable intuitional grounds.
