A fast calculation method for computer generation of cylindrical holograms is
proposed. The calculation method is based on wave propagation in spectral domain
and in cylindrical co-ordinates, which is otherwise similar to the angular
spectrum of plane waves in cartesian co-ordinates. The calculation requires only
two FFT operations and hence is much faster. The theoretical background of the
calculation method, sampling conditions and simulation results are presented.
The generated cylindrical hologram has been tested for reconstruction in
different view angles and also in plane surfaces.
