Abstract : Four full wave differential equations are solved by use of an analog computer to obtain reflection coefficients and equivalent heights for parabolic layers. The analog computer easily and inexpensively plotted solution curves to the full wave differential equations. Numerous sets of these solution curves are presented to show the effects of parameter changes on the solutions of the differential equations. (Author)
