The problem of TM-mode scattering from the finite number of rectangular notches in a parallel plate waveguide is considered. The Fourier-transform is employed to obtain simultaneous equations and the simultaneous equations are solved to obtain an analytic solution in rapidly-convergent series. Numerical computations are performed to investigate the scattering behavior in terms of frequency and notch sizes. The presented theory is applicable to the analysis of scattering from the E-plane stubs in the rectangular waveguide.
