"The problem was the application of matrix theory to the solution of the reflection and transmission coefficients for a plane wave incident on a layered media. Background material relating to the problem was reviewed. Equations that were used in the solution of the problem were either derived or explained. The derivations for the reflection and transmission coefficients were carried out in order, starting with the simple case of normal incidence on a junction of two infinite media and progressing through the more difficult case of oblique incidence on a layer of finite thickness separating two infinite media. Scatter matrix analysis for electrical networks was reviewed and was applied to the layered media. Possible simplifications of the resulting equations were considered"--Abstract, page ii.
