Electromagnetic wave scattering from a metallic multiwalled carbon nanotube is investigated by using the boundary-value approach and modal series expansion of the scattered and transmitted fields. Electronic excitations of each wall of the system are modeled as an infinitesimally thin cylindrical layer of the free electrons, whose dynamics are described by means of the fluid theory. The system is illuminated by a cylindrical wave from a line source that is placed in a direction parallel to the nanotube axis. The problem is two-dimensional, and the solution to both types of polarization (electric and magnetic line source) is presented
