Abstract

When analyzing the two-dimensional multiple scattering of electromagnetic waves by cylinders, the incident, scattered, and transmitted fields need to be represented by infinite sums of cylindrical wave modes. These infinite sums need to be truncated to a finite limit in order to calculate the scattering matrix. The accuracy of the scattered field representation and the stability of the matrix inversion are both critically dependent on the truncation limit. The parameters involved in the scattering are analyzed to determine their effect on the upper and lower bounds of an appropriate modal truncation.
