Created by Per-Simon Kildal, November 1999 GO reflection Geometrical optics (GO) is asymptotically correct for large frequencies. Propagation along straight rays. Incident field is spherical wave, i.e. field propagating along a GO ray defined by: r s   r f s s ˆ i ; + = s ˆ i r ˆ f = Reflection law in vector form: s ˆ r s ˆ i 2 n ˆ s ˆ i n ˆ = Corresponds to: n ˆ s ˆ r n ˆ s ˆ i = r cos i cos = r i =
