    Department of Physics, San Diego State University, San Diego, California 92182 1233, USA
    Appl Opt 51:644-50. 2012
    ..We show two examples that confirm our ideas. We expect that these results will be very useful for computational comparison with experimental studies of a variety of diffraction phenomena...
