Paper Abstract

This paper indicates a method of obtaining a rigorous solution of the electromagnetic wave equation for a plane wave incident on a hexagonal ice cylinder of the kind often observed in ice clouds"). A generalization of the method of solution, to a wider class of boundary surfaces, valid for differential equations other than the electromagnetic field equations appears possible. The latter surfaces are either cylindrical or closed, in distinction to surfaces spanning curves embedded in three-dimensional space. Rigorous solutions for surfaces which span curves have already been obtained by an extension of Sommerfeld's method2-4).
