Abstract

The Rayleigh-Sommerfeld solutions and the Luneburg-Severin-Vasseur and Severin-Vasseur solutions of diffraction problems are shown to satisfy certain reciprocity theorems in the case of a spherical incident wave. These new reciprocity theorems have very simple relations to those known in Kirchhoff’s theory of diffraction.
