This chapter considers the diffraction of a plane acoustic wave illuminating completely the surface of a right-circular impedance cone. Formulation of the problem is also given for an arbitrary convex cone and uniqueness of the solution is discussed. By separating the radial variable the problem at hand is then reduced to that for a spectral function. Further separation of the angular variables for the circular cone leads to integral equations for the Fourier coefficients. The use of the Sommerfeld integral enables one to describe the far-field asymptotics for, in particular, the reflected wave, the spherical wave from the vertex of the cone, and the surface waves.
