Maxima in the reflections should, reasonably enough, correspond to minima in the transmissions, and vice versa. So we might expect to apply those equations to this case if we switch the designations “maxima” and “minima,” if we are careful with the phase shifts that occur at the points of reflection (which depend on the relative values of
