Abstract

The scattering of the radiated fields of a line source by a cylindrical parabolic reflector, which has impedance boundary conditions on its surface, is obtained by using the surface integrals of the modified theory of physical optics. The reflected geometrical optics and edge diffracted fields are evaluated by using the asymptotic methods. The scattered fields are plotted numerically for various parameters such as surface impedance and angles of the edges.
