Abstract

Much wave propagation theory is not generally useful because plane parallel boundaries are assumed. In the present paper, the theory for wave phenomena at an irregular infinite interface is developed. As most interfaces in the earth are irregular, such a theory should prove valuable. The Weber integral solution to the wave equation is interpreted using a dual limiting procedure to define a principal value. Numerical formulation and applications are given in following articles.
