  • Abstract

This paper is an introduction to a conservative, positive numerical scheme which takes into account the phenomena of reflection and transmission of high frequency acoustic waves at a straight interface between two homogeneous media. Explicit forms of the interpolation coefficients for reflected and transmitted wave vectors on a two-dimensional uniform grid are derived. The propagation model is a Liouville transport equation solved in phase space.
