Abstract

Simple exponential functions that approach zero for reflection and shadow boundaries are considered to cancel the infinite values of diffraction coefficients at these regions. This method is applied to a wedge diffraction coefficient, and the resultant uniform coefficient is compared with the exact diffracted fields numerically.
