We develop a mathematical model of triangle-mesh-modeled three-dimensional (3D) surface objects for digital holography. The proposed mathematical model includes the analytic angular spectrum representation of image light fields emitted from 3D surface objects with occlusion and the computation method for the developed light field representation. Reconstruction of computer-generated holograms synthesized by using the developed model is demonstrated experimentally.
