The scattering property of TMz illuminated a elliptic dielectric cylinders with arbitrary cross section are analyzed by the boundary element techniques. The boundary element equations are for- mulated via Maxwell's equations, weighted residual of Green's theorem, and the boundary conditions. The unknown surface fields on the boundaries are then calculated by the boundary element integral equations. Once the surface fields are found, the scattered fields in far-zone and scattering widths (SW) are readily determined. To show the validity and usefulness of this formulation, computations are compared with those obtained using analytical method and one layer circular cylinder. As exten- sion to arbitrary cross-sectioned cylinders, plane wave scattering from a elliptic dielectric cylinders are numerically analyzed. A general computer program has been developed using the quadratic ele- ments(Higher order borndary elements) and the Gaussian quadrature.
