Half-Wave Rectification

Is the period on a voltage vs. time graph for a half-wave signal the same as the period of a normal alternating current's waveform?

Are there any good books that discuss rectification?

Thank you.

If the former signal is made by rectifying the latter, yes - they have the same period.

However, if you a symmetric full-wave rectification on a sinusoidal (or other symmetric) signal, you halve the period (double the frequency).
