Application of the Method for Different Propagation Situations
The method presented in Chapter 1 can be used not only in cases in which the media in space-segments are homogeneous between the boundary surfaces — see Fig. 1.1 —, but also in cases in which the media in these space-segments are weakly inhomogeneous (quasi-homogeneous) or inhomogeneous (e.g. Ferencz, 1995b) and the gradient of the inhomogeneous medium parameters is limited only by the validity-condition of the method (Ferencz, 1978a). In the following let us generalise the method of solution — presented in point 1.1 and applied in point 1.3 — for the cases in which the media in the space-segments are quasi-homogeneous and inhomogeneous between the boundary surfaces.
