Abstract. Using the methods of a computational experiment, a study was made of the process of focusing a monopolar electromagnetic pulse by a cylindrical paraboloid. It is shown that the field of a monopolar pulse with a plane wavefront, reflected and transmitted through the focus of a cylindrical paraboloid, becomes bipolar, and the time dependence of the electric field is proportional to the time derivative of the incident pulse field.

Keywords: monopolar electromagnetic pulse, focusing.

Financing: The work was carried out within the framework of the state assignment of the Kotelnikov IRE RAS.
