In addition to the change of direction in accordance with Eqs. 4), the interaction between the wave and the boundary also causes the energy in the incident wave to be split between the reflected and transmitted waves. The amplitudes of the reflected and transmitted waves are given relative to the incident wave amplitude by the Fresnel [fra - nel] reflection and transmission coefficients, which arise from the solution of Maxwell’s equations at the boundary. These express the ratio of the transmitted and reflected electric fields to the incident electric field.

The strongest rays are usually those involving the fewest interactions on their journey from source to field points. Step 2 relies on the waves being locally plane at the points of interaction and on the surfaces with given constitutive parameters being reasonably large. This is the central assumption of geometrical optics and requires that the wavelength is short in comparison with all of the following lengths:  distance between the source and the first interactions along each ray path;  distance between individual interactions;  dimensions of any of the individual materials.
