Abstract

An exact decomposition of the diffracted field into a direct wave and a boundary diffraction wave is obtained for an incident inhomogeneous wave, namely, the complex-source-point spherical wave. Our result, in the paraxial approximation, is consistent with already published results on the diffraction of a Gaussian beam.
