Brain and Perception: Holonomy and Structure in Figural Processing
Karl H. Pribram
Lawrence Erlbaum Assoc; (August 1991)
Particularly the appendicies, co-authored by Jibu and Yasue, and by
Basil Hiley, previously partner to David Bohm with whom Pribram
started work on this theory.
The "simplification" is in terms of Schoedinger equations and Gabor's
information equations used to describe holography.
