Abstract : The purpose of the report is to discuss the equations controlling the propagation of waves in the lower region of the ionosphere. The first part of the report deals with the analytical treatment of the wave equations governing reflection and transmission of waves through a planarly stratified ionosphere. The mathematical treatment includes the effect of positive and negative ions. The computer program for integrating the corresponding wave equations is given. (Author)
