Boundary condition for the wavevectors at the exit surface. (a) Reciprocal space. The wavevectors of the emerging waves are determined by the intersections [M_{1}], [M_{2}], [N_{1}] and [N_{2}] of the normals n′ to the exit surface, drawn from the tie points [P_{1}] and [P_{2}] of the wavefields, with the tangents [T'_{o}] and [T'_{h}] to the spheres centred at O and H and of radius k, respectively. (b) Direct space.
