Abstract

The problem of diffraction of homogeneous and inhomogeneous plane waves at the discontinuity formed by perfectly conducting and impedance half-planes is examined by the method of modified theory of physical optics (MTPO). The MTPO integral of the reflected scattered waves by the perfectly conducting half-plane is reconstructed in order to include the effect of the diffracted wave coming from the edge of the impedance half-plane. The integrals are evaluated by a uniform asymptotic method. The results are plotted numerically and compared with the literature.
