Abstract : After several years of research, the image theory has been found acceptable to solve the sound propagation problem within a wedge-shaped fluid overlying either a slow or a fast bottom. Some further observations where done in this research. The primary purpose was the development and computer application of a new analysis, the doublet analysis, based on the image theory. In this analysis, the features of the image theory are studied from another point of view, based on a collection of acoustic doublets.
