Abstract:

A computer program for calculating plane wave transmission through an inhomogeneous cold plasma slab is described. The program accepts arbitrary profiles including jumps in number density and collision frequency. It prints out the electric and magnetic field profiles for the angles of incidence, direction of incidence, and polarizations of the wave that are called for. It also gives the reflection and transmission coefficients in each case.
