This thesis demonstrates the importance of an accurate imaging model for making holographic stereograms by evaluating the geometric perspective distortion that is seen in flat holographic stereograms made using a circularly symmetric imaging model. A correct anamorphic imaging model for flat holographic stereograms is discussed and the limitations of the new model are explored. An implementation of the anamorphic imaging model as a computer system for creating geometric distortion-free holographic stereograms IS described. Holographic stereograms were made using the computer system. A comparison is made of the uncorrected and corrected holographic stereograms. From viewing these holographic stereograms it is apparent that geometric distortion can be eliminated by using the correct anamorphic imaging model when creating holographic stereograms.
