Abstract : A method for calculating the electromagnetic field scattered from a rough, perfectly conducting surface having one-dimensional variation is presented. The calculation proceeds in two steps: (1) calculation of the current distribution on the surface via integral equation techniques, and (2) calculation of the scattered fields using these currents as sources. Shadowing and multiple scattering effects are included. (Author)
