Abstract

A theory of interaction between a Gaussian beam described by a first-order Davis approximation and an infinite cylinder, introducing scalar potentials that are not linear combinations of separable potentials, is discussed. The theory exhibits unexpected difficulties, forming a challenge that should attract the attention of other researchers.
