Matrix forms for the Knott-Zoeppritz equations

Kris Innanen

ABSTRACT

In this note we derive convenient matrix forms for the the Knott-Zoeppritz equations. The attempt is to recapture results used (quoted, not derived) by Levin and Keys, and to extend these to include the case of an incident S-wave. In addition to being straightforward to solve and analyze, these forms are used in several other papers in this year's CREWES report.
