This paper presents a novel formulation to reduce radiation integrals to line integrals. Such a reduction is exact for Kirchhoff aperture radiation integrals and physical optics (PO) scattering from flat soft/hard (perfectly conducting) plates, illuminated by a spherical source, but can be effectively extended in an approximate version to more general… (More)
