Before attacking the Fresnel problems we shall restate some of the considerations of our last paper, dealing with the Fraunhofer diffraction in a new form suitable for generalization . The main question discussed in that paper was as to the intensity of light diffracted by any optical structure at a given angle to the incident beam. We saw there that the "electronic intensity," ρ of the diffracting system is a function of the space which may be referred to any system of coordinates. Let us use a rectangular cartesian system x, y, z and denote the cosines of the angles between the axes and the direction of the incident ray by αo, βo, γo.
