A Time Domain Incremental Theory of Diffraction: Scattering of Electromagnetic Pulsed Plane Waves

By A. M. Attiya, E. El-Diwany, A. M. Shaarawi, and I. M. Besieris

Full Article PDF (207 KB)

Abstract:
A new formulation of a time domain incremental theory is introduced. This approach is applied to the scattering of a pulsed plane wave incident on a circular disk. It is shown that the scattered field is free from singularities at caustics and exhibits a notable wave structure outside Keller's cone.
