Abstract : The scattering of a plane monochromatic wave by a uniformly expanding, perfectly conducting sphere is formulated as a boundary value problem in the space-time domain. The problem is then converted into an initial value problem of a linear ordinary differential equation of the Euler type. For velocity of expansion small compared to the velocity of light, this equation is solved approximately and the nature of the solution examined. (Author)
