We investigate the scattering process of plane waves by a conducting half-plane between two dielectric media by introducing novel boundary conditions, in terms of soft and hard surfaces. The cases of soft and hard half-planes are studied independently. The scattered waves are examined numerically. The numerical results show that the behavior of the fields is in harmony with the theory. The transition between the two dielectric media is continuous, and the structure of the method enables one also to examine more complex geometries, such as wedges having soft and hard boundary conditions.
