A method based on the Monte Carlo procedure is suggested to simulate the reconstruction of non-Fourier-type computer-generated holograms (CGHs). The cases of amplitude holograms (CGAHs) and phase holograms (CGPHs), or "kinoform lenses," are investigated. A method to model the finite pixel size of the hologram is suggested. An importance sampling method is proposed to simulate the reconstruction of CGAHs.
