Abstract : The problem of scattering by thin cylindrical dielectric shells of large circular cross sections is approached by two methods: (1) an infinite series of eigenfunctions, and (2) the method of moments. Numerical results are presented for shell radii of 0.3 lambda, 3.0 lambda, and 30 lambda, the source being an electric line current near but external to the shell. Computer programs are presented which implement these two solutions. When the scattering structure does become large limitations on numerical results are encountered due to computer memory and speed limitations. (Author)
