Abstract: The expansions of the Green's function $ {e^{ik\left\vert {r - r'} \right\vert}}/\left\vert {r - r'} \right\vert$ in spherical and spheroidal coordinate systems were studied by some researchers; however, because of its complexity this kind of expansion has not been performed in a cylindrical coordinate system. With the aid of the expressions of the Bessel functions $ {J_{ - 1/2}}$ and $ {J_{1/2}}$ and of the transformation from these functions to the spherical Bessel functions, the author has analytically derived the expansion of the Green's function in the cylindrical coordinate system.
