In the past wave functions of integral order have been used quite advantageously in the solution of certain antenna and boundary-value problems. However, in some instances these wave functions are completely alien to the problem and introduce difficulties which, indeed, can be resolved but only at the expense of logical simplicity. To place in evidence the usefulness and "naturalness" of complex order wave functions for the solution of certain problems, we examine theoretically the input admittance of a boss antenna with the aid of these functions.
