Abstract: The phenomenological theory of multi-mode surface wave propagation is applied to a plane structure having a multi-mode discontinuity in impedance. The resulting boundary-value problem is reduced to the solution of a Wiener-Hopf equation whose factorization is given in terms of the factorization that occurred in the one-mode case. Despite the complexity of the solution, the magnitudes of the surface wave excitation coefficients are elementary functions, as is the cylindrical power flow.
