Electromagnetic scattering from a cylindrical reflector surface having an arbitrary conic section profile is studied. We assumed an electrically thin layer antenna illuminated by a complex line source in E-polarization mode. Our boundary value formulation, without loss of generality, involves an integral equation approach having impedance-type thin-layer boundary conditions. For simplicity, we also considered both faces of the reflector of the same uniform impedance value. Our computation employs the Method of Analytical Regularization (MAR) technique: the integral equations are converted into the discrete Fourier transform domain yielding two coupled dual series equations, which are then solved by the Fourier inversion and Riemann Hilbert Problem techniques. We demonstrate the accuracy and the convergence behaviors of our numerically solved MAR results that can serve as an accurate benchmark for comparison with widely used results obtained by approximate boundary conditions.
