Abstract: In this paper, new expressions for the field produced by the diffraction of a cylindrical wave by a wedge, whose angle can be expressed as a rational multiple of π are given. The solutions are expressed in terms of source terms and real integrals that represent the diffracted field. The general result obtained includes as special cases, Macdonald's solution for diffraction by a half plane, a solution for Carslaw's problem of diffraction by a wedge of open angle 2π\3, and a new representation for the solution of the problem of diffraction by a mixed soft-hard half plane.
