Iterative methods offer a practical means for the calculation of wave scattering from two-dimensional surfaces. We present what is to our knowledge the first calculation of the scattering of an electromagnetic beam from a two-dimensional, randomly rough, perfectly conducting surface, using an iterative approach. We also examine a bootstrapping scheme of iteration that can further reduce computing time.
