Abstract : A method for solving three-dimensional axially symmetric problems related to the diffraction and radiation from a general class of bodies of revolution is given. The method depends on the conformal transformation of the region outside the meridian profile of the body into the region outside a circle. The required boundary value problem is formulated in spherical coordinates in the transformed space. In this form, Galerkin's method can be applied to obtain a functional approximation for the solution of the boundary value problem. (Author)
