Rubinowicz introduced a uniform asymptotic evaluation of the boundary diffraction wave at the transition region [ Ann. Phys. (Leipzig) 378, 339 (1924) ]. The uniform theory of Rubinowicz is generalized for the improved integrals of the boundary diffraction wave. The technique is applied to the scattering problem of plane waves by an impedance half-plane, and the diffracted waves are examined numerically.
