A generalized finite-difference (FD) scheme combined with the measured equation of invariance (MEI) is presented for the analysis of electromagnetic scattering from an inhomogeneous and lossy chiral cylinder with electrically large, arbitrarily shaped cross section. A new FD mesh in both chiral and achiral regions is formed, and the FD equations in a chiral medium are derived; then a large sparse matrix is formulated. The numerical results of bistatic scattering width (two-dimensional radar cross section) are given for the chiral cylinders of rectangular, elliptical, and complex cross section, respectively. Some results are compared with available data
