Abstract

Scattering from two neighboring parallel circular cylinders is generalized to the case of an arbitrary ensemble of parallel, nonoverlapping, circular cylinders of arbitrary sizes. An exact solution of Maxwell’s equations is given in terms of a transverse magnetic, and a transverse electric, scalar-potential function, from which the extinction, backscattering, and total-scattering cross sections are obtained, each as an infinite linear sum of the scattering-amplitude coefficients.
