supposed to be made up of "opaque" portions (the boundary conditions are

Just as for diffraction by a screen, the zeroth approximation is given by classical
ray theory. The wave aspects of the fields give corrections to this, with the
scattering confined to angular regions only slightly away from the paths of
geometrical ...
