Abstract

An angular spectrum representation in three dimensions is used to develop three-dimensional Fourier forms of the first and second Rayleigh–Sommerfeld diffraction formulae and the Kirchhoff diffraction formula. For forward-propagating waves, these reduce to three-dimensional Fourier representations for diffraction in the forward half-space.
