Propagation of Sound in a Refracting Medium

The reflexion of a sound-wave is studied at an inhomogeneous layer with parallel surfaces separating two homogeneous semi-infinite media having different indices. By means of an appropriate change of function, Helmholtz's variable-coefficient equation is split up into a pair of equations of the same type, but with constant coefficients in which there appear “virtual sources” containing the unknown field. By using Green's function in. expressing the solution, these equations can be transformed into an integro-differential equation for the field and an integral equation for the virtual sources. The latter equation is solved numerically and hence the coefficient of reflexion of the plate is deduced.
