A new approximation of the logarithmic derivative of the Hankel function is derived and applied to high-frequency wave scattering. We re-derive the on surface radiation condition (OSRC) approximations that are well suited for a Dirichlet boundary in acoustics. These correspond to the Engquist-Majda absorbing boundary conditions. Inverse OSRC approximations are derived and they are used for Neumann boundary conditions. We obtain an implicit OSRC condition, where we need to solve a tridiagonal system. The OSRC approximations are well suited for moderate wave numbers. The approximation of the logarithmic derivative is also used for deriving a generalized physical optics approximation, both for Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions. We have obtained similar approximations in electromagnetics, for a perfect electric conductor. Numerical computations are done for different objects in 2D and 3D and for different wave numbers. The improvement over the standard physical optics is verified.
