Abstract: We present a new and self-contained theory for mapping properties of the boundary operators for slit diffraction occurring in Sommerfeld\x92s diffraction theory, covering two different cases of the polarisation of the light. This theory is entirely developed in the context of the boundary operators with a Hankel kernel and not based on the corresponding mixed boundary value problem for the Helmholtz equation. For a logarithmic approximation of the Hankel kernel we also study the corresponding mapping properties and derive explicit solutions together with certain regularity results.

Keywords: Sommerfeld diffraction theory, Fourier analysis, Sobolev spaces, mapping properties, boundary integral equations, Hankel functions
