Whether there are finite range potentials that do not give rise to scattering [i.e., for which U(s)(r) ≡ 0 everywhere outside the scattering volume D] does not appear to be known. However, the answer to the corresponding question for the radiation problem is known: There are monochromatic source distributions of finite support D that do not generate any fields outside D[see, for example, A. J. Devaney, E. Wolf, “Radiating and non-radiating classical current distributions and the fields they generate,” Phys. Rev. D 8,1044–1047 (1973)].

If instead of Eq. (2.8) we make use in Eq. (2.6) of the alternative representation (R1) of G(r, r′), we readily obtain the following alternative form of the angular spectrum representation of the scattered fields:(R3)U(s)(r)=∫∫−∞∞a(±)(sx,sy)exp[ik(sxx+syy±szz)]dsxdsy.Here sz is given by Eq. (R2), and(R4)a(±)(sx,sy)=ik2πA(α,β).In Eq. (R3) the upper or the lower sign is taken according to whether the point r≡ (x, y, z) is situated in the half-space ℛ+or ℛ−, respectively. In Eq. (R4) the upper or lower sign is associated with polar angle α that is on the contour C+or C−, respectively. Angular spectrum representations of the form (R3) are frequently used in optics.
