This paper analyzes and solves an integral and its indefinite Fourier transform of importance in multiple scattering problems of randomly distributed scatterers.
The integrand contains a radiating spherical wave, and the two-dimensional domain of integration excludes a circular region of varying size.
A solution of the integral in terms of radiating spherical waves is demonstrated. The method employs the Erdelyi operators, which leads to a recursion relation. This recursion relation is solved in terms of a finite sum of radiating spherical waves.
The solution of the indefinite Fourier transform of the integral contains the indefinite Fourier transforms of the Legendre polynomials, which are solved by a recursion relation.
