Abstract

The use of computer-generated holograms to display three-dimensional images is suggested. To simplify the calculation of the hologram, the parallax in the vertical direction is eliminated where a projection of the object onto the hologram plane is performed. The synthesis of the horizontal parallax involves one-dimensional transforms. This procedure reduces computer-memory requirements and permits a high-speed generation.
