Uniform scattered fields of a cylindrical wave from a parabolic surface are obtained with the theory of the boundary diffraction wave (TBDW). A non-uniform diffracted field is calculated with a regenerated vector potential and rearranged by considering the Fresnel function to obtain a uniform solution. Uniform scattered fields are calculated as the sum of diffracted and geometrical optic fields. Numerical analyses of diffracted and scattered fields in both uniform and non-nuniform solutions are in harmony with the literature.
