A computational method for solving a wide range of transverse waveguide discontinuity problems is described. Results are obtained by the simultaneous solution of matrix equations, generated by Fourier analysis, which relate the complex amplitudes of orthogonal electric and magnetic field components. In some cases, the solution is found to be sensitive to the way in which infinite series of field functions are truncated, and it is shown how the optimum form of truncation can be determined for many configurations of practical importance. Several examples showing the application of the method are given, and comparison of results with those obtained by experiment, and by other analytical techniques, confirms its accuracy.
