The authors present generalized surface impedance conditions that improve medium characterization. One of the most common conditions that is often used to simulate a dielectric coating is the standard impedance boundary condition, and the improved boundary condition discussed can be viewed as a generalization of this, distinguished by the presence of higher-order derivatives of the field. By virtue of the derivatives, the conditions are less local in character, and the additional degrees of freedom can be used to better simulate the material properties of a surface. Following a review of the standard impedance condition, the new conditions are introduced. Several forms are presented, each with coefficients which are functions of the geometry and material properties of the surface. The applications of these to a variety of scattering problems are then discussed
