Scattering of plane waves by an open arc with different boundary conditions on its sides

The paper considers an approach to  numerical modelling of the problem of electromagnetic plane waves scattering by an open arc with different boundary conditions on its sides. The corresponding mixed boundary value problem is reduced to a system of two singular and hypersingular integral equations. The method of collocation for numerical solutions to the equations obtained is proposed and analyzed. Numerical results of the radar cross-section for different values of arc curvatures are presented.
