Abstract

The theory of scattering of arbitrary-shaped beams by an infinite cylinder with arbitrary location and arbitrary orientation is presented. The theory relies on the use of distributions that provide the most general framework, which allows the use of any description of the incident beam. Apart from this peculiarity, the theory relies on the use of scalar potentials, and the resulting framework is rather similar to that of the generalized Lorenz–Mie theory for spheres.
