We propose an asymmetric wavelet method to reconstruct a particle from a hologram illuminated by an elliptical, astigmatic Gaussian beam. The particle can be reconstructed by a convolution of the asymmetric wavelet and hologram. The reconstructed images have the same size and resolution as the recorded hologram; therefore, the reconstructed 3D field is convenient for automatic particle locating and sizing. The asymmetric wavelet method is validated by both simulated holograms of spherical particles and experimental holograms of opaque, nonspherical coal particles.
