Abstract : A mathematical study is made on the problem of the electromagnetic theory to determine the diffracted electromagnetic wave which is produced when a prescribed wave, propagating in a homogeneous isotropic dielectric medium, strikes a prescribed metallic obstacle. The foundations for a mathematical theory of this problem are developed together with theorems which demonstrate the existence and uniqueness of the solution and theorems which describe its functional properties.
