An exact matrix conformation model” associated with the equations describing the exact behavior of the Fourier-Bessel multiple scattering coefficients of the diffraction grating consisting of an infinite number of infinitely long parallel penetrable circular cylinders, corresponding to the obliquely incident transverse-magnetic plane waves in “Twersky-Wait-Kavaklıoğlu representation,” originally excogitated in (Kavaklıoğlu, 2000), is acquired, and the exact solution for “the Fourier-Bessel multiple scattering coefficients of the diffraction grating at oblique incidence” is obtained by a matrix inversion procedure.
