With the recent development of diffraction coefficients for imperfectly conduction half-planes, it has become possible to analyze a wide variety of problems for which the impedance surface-boundary condition applies. This impedance boundary condition, while approximate, has been utilized to extend the usefulness of the uniform geometrical theory of diffraction (UTD) beyond the perfectly conducting geometries. These half-plane diffraction coefficients are used to analyze patterns of an antenna in the presence of an imperfectly conducting flat polygonal plate. This work supplements the well-known UTD problem of an antenna in the presence of a perfectly conducting ground plane.
