Higher-order boundary conditions are a useful tool for simplification of complex electromagnetic problems, such as spatially dispersive metasurfaces. A technique known as the Extended Generalized Sheet Transition Conditions (GSTCs) method has recently been proposed that allows for the systematic simulation of spatially dispersive metasurfaces using higherorder boundary conditions. A general metasurface, in general requires a boundary condition of infinite order spatial derivatives to accurately model the surface, making them unsuitable for conventional full-wave modeling techniques where higherorder derivatives are computed numerically. Here we propose a mixed spatial-spectral domain representation of the boundary conditions that avoids the explicit computation of higher-order derivatives while still being in a form suitable for integration into standard numerical methods. We integrate these boundary conditions into an integral equation solver which is then successfully validated through several numerical examples.
