 The problem of electromagnetic scattering by a dielectric wedge has attracted attention recently because of reported disagreement between the theory and numerical experiments concerning a certain behavior of the fields near the wedge vertex. The goal of this paper is to show that what is reported has been not a disagreement but a misinterpretation of the existing theory, which predicts all of the numerically observed effects.
