Applications of Transfer Matrices

  • André Xuereb
Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In this chapter, I will apply the transfer matrix method developed in Chap. 4 to novel cooling geometries outside cavities (Sects. 5.1 and 5.2), as well as inside active ring cavities (Sect.5.3).
