Several techniques are reviewed in high-definition computer holography. These techniques are based on numerical techniques in wave optics. For example, the polygon-based method based on propagation between tilted planes is used for calculating the field of polygonal surface sources of light. Numerical propagation of large-scaled field is also implemented by using the technique of off-axis propagation. The silhouette method for occlusion processing is based on the angular spectrum method for propagation between parallel planes. The relation between computer holography and computational optics are presented and several high-definition CGHs using these techniques are demonstrated for verifying the techniques.
