Abstract
In the past decade the analysis of electromagnetic scattering and antenna problems has been greatly advanced by two different theories, the method of moments (MM) and the geometrical theory of diffraction (GTD). More recently, hybrid techniques have been developed which combine the moment with the GTD and also combine the moment method or the GTD with eigenfunction solutions. It is the intent of this paper to present an overview of methods which formally combine the moment method with either eigenfunction or asymptotic techniques (i.e. GTD or optically derived currents). Each method is briefly explained and the advantages and limitations of each are given.
