Uniform asymptotic solution of the problem of diffraction for a linear quadrupole source
Abstract
A uniform asymptotic solution for electromagnetic diffraction of a line source field by a halfplane in a uniaxially anisotropic medium is presented. The medium surrounding the halfplane is described in a system of Cartesian coordinates by means of tensors of electrical and magnetic permeability. The diffraction halfplane is fully conductive and lies perpendicular to the distinguished axis of the medium. The incident wave is beamed by the linear quadrupole source parallel to the edge of the halfplane. The basic feature of the formulated solution is its essentially vector character.
