The currents and charges induced in a pair of electrically thin crossed wires by a normally incident plane electromagnetic wave are derived by analytical methods. The boundary conditions at the junction are explained and compared with the somewhat different ones used in the past. The solution of a new integro-differential equation for the currents is obtained in terms of trigonometric and integral-trigonometric functions. Depending on the electrical lengths of the crossed elements and the location of their junction a variety of quite different distributions of current and charge is obtained. These determine the scattered near and far fields. Author
