established for spherical and plane waves.

INTRODUCTION
+r |
As is known,", 2 the
Maggi-Rubinowicz
transformation
makes it possible to express the surface integral constituting
Kirchhoff's formulation of the problem of diffraction in a
line integral extended to the closed line constituting the
boundary of the aperture. The derivation of this transformation (in the case of a spherical or plane wave) has been
included in textbooks on optics for some time,3 -5 and the
problem is considered here only in the special case when one
has an aperture in an opaque screen.

The integral extended to the aperture A can be considered in
all aspects as the Kirchhoff solution of the problem of diffraction through an aperture A in an opaque screen, and
thus Kirchhoff's boundary conditions are implicit:
As the Kirchhoff integral can easily be applied to problems referring to phase apertures, it seems obvious that such

Similarly, the integral extended to aperture B may be considered in all aspects as the solution of the problem of diffraction through an aperture B (complementary to A) in an

Obviously, if the direction cosines of n are -1, 0, and 0, Eq.

With reference to Fig. 4, the single phase slit has a transmission function
Polygonal Phase Aperture
In the special case of the Fraunhofer approximation, the
Maggi-Rubinowicz
transformation
is a powerful method for
calculation of the diffracted wave field through a polygonal
aperture in an opaque screen.8 The boundary wave from
the ith side is simply the unidimensional Fourier transform
of the x projection of this side [Eq. (4) of Ref. 8] or the
unidimensional Fourier transform of the side if this side is
t(x,
) = {exp(ikA),
orthogonal to the x axis [Eq. (6) of Ref. 8].
In the special case of a polygonal phase aperture (Fig. 5),
[x: > 1/2
Equation (10) and relation (13) directly applied to this case
give
UB = UBI + UB2 = A [1 2w
the factor [1 - exp(ikA)] is taken into account in the use of
Eqs. (4) and (6) of Ref. 8.
An interesting application is given in the following subsec-
tion.

by using the Kirchhoff or the Rayleigh-Sommerfeld formulation of the problem.
