Abstract : Representations are derived that describe the interactions of the waves that are reflected from both perfectly rigid and perfectly free interfaces during the arrival of a centered wave with any wave traveling in the opposite direction. These are used to analyze the early stages of the deformation produced when the traction at the loaded boundary continues to vary after changing discontinuously. (Author-PL)
