is half and half the same as single cream?

I've just moved to the US from Britain. There we have single cream and double cream, double being the fattier of the two and capable of being whipped. Is half and half single cream, or is there light cream vs heavy cream--I'm assuming the heavy cream here is indeed double cream???

I am confused as to what constitutes the respective halves.
