The previously developed heuristic uniform theory of diffraction corner and wedge diffraction coefficients for a thin lossless anisotropic slab are generalized and applied for predicting electromagnetic scattering by a lossy/lossless multilayer anisotropic slab. The effective reflection and transmission coefficients of a multilayer slab are used in the heuristic formulation to determine the scattered fields. The heuristic coefficients derived for a thin slab are applied to a multilayer slab with a finite thickness. Numerical results are provided for various scattering problems that demonstrate the validity of the heuristic formulations for a multilayer structure.
