Scattering by randomly irregular narrow strips of constant width


  • Cornel Eftimiu


Scattering of plane electromagnetic waves by randomly irregular narrow strips is considered in the case when the constant width is much smaller than the wavelength and the randomly irregular strip is a straight line on the average. The randomness is treated in second order of perturbation theory. The domain of validity of perturbation theory is extended by using Padé approximants. The results obtained are also used to establish the connection with earlier work based on a different approach.
