38. Eqs. 36-14 and 36-16 treat the interference of reﬂections, and here we are concerned with interference of the transmitted light. 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
