A mathematical model that describes a fiber-to-fiber holographic connector is presented. We consider both single- and double-image cases for the reconstruction of the second hologram. A comparative study of the two coupling conditions is presented. Fourier analysis of the coupling equation enables us to study the linearity of the system
