An investigation is made of the propagation of electromagnetic waves normal to a plasma slab having a density grandient. The plane of polarization of waves is perpendicular to an external magnetic field. At resonances, a WKB-type approximation does not represent waves and an appreciable absorption appears due to infinitesimal collisions so called the resonance absorption. The transmission and absorption coefficients are obtained in the limit of no collisions when in the slab the cut off is adjacent to the resonance. Author
