Abstract : The long-wavelength limit of the scattering of electromagnetic radiation is considered in the transverse magnetic mode by infinite plasma cylinders with radially varying electron-density distributions. Techniques for calculating the scattering cross section are described for both increasing and decreasing electron-density distributions. Resonance phenomena peculiar to increasing electron-density distributions are discussed in some detail with specific numerical examples. A resume of methods is presented which can be used to calculate the scattering cross section for radiation of arbitrary wavelength for monotonically decreasing electron-density distributions. Examples are given for the Gaussian electron distribution.
