This chapter discusses the diffraction of an electromagnetic surface wave by an impedance sheet with an angular break. The vector of the magnetic field strength H of the wave is directed along the edge of the break. The angular break divides R3 into two wedge-shaped domains, Ω1 and Ω2. The axis OZ coincides with the edge of the structure, whereas the transverse magnetic surface wave is incident along the side Γ+ in the direction orthogonal to the edge. In this case, a solution depends on the coordinates x and y. The principal problem consists of computing the scattering diagram (diffraction coefficient) of the cylindrical wave propagating from the edge.
