Simple analytical expressions of the dyadic Green's function for a conducting half-sheet have been derived. These expressions involve some finite integrals which can be easily calculated by a digital computer and are much simpler than those involving the vector mode function expansion. Input impedances of monopole antennas on and near an edge of a conducting half-sheet and the impedance of a notch antenna have been obtained, and the usefulness of these simplified expressions has been proved. The present results can be applied to check the limits of the applicability of the asymptotic theories, e.g., the geometrical theory of diffraction (GTD) and the uniform asymptotic theory of diffraction (UAT).
