Caption: Harmonic wave scattering. Numerical simulation of the wave pattern produced by scattering of a harmonic wave front moving from upper right to lower left past a cylinder. The sequence starts at upper left and finishes at lower right. Here, the wavelength is bigger than the radius of the scattering centre, and no pronounced 'shadow' forms behind the scattering centre. This simulation is shown as waves moving across a surface, but is based on the differential equations that describe dispersion-free electromagnetic waves. See C014/7192 to C014/7196 for images showing how the pattern changes with wavelength size.
