  Fresnel equations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fraction of the intensity of incident light that is reflected from the interface is given by the reflection coefficient R, and the fraction refracted by the transmission coefficient T.
The reflection and transmission coefficients correspond to the ratio of the intensity of the incident ray to that of the reflected and transmitted rays.
Equations for coefficients corresponding to ratios of the electric field amplitudes of the waves can also be derived, and these are also called "Fresnel equations".

 Augustin-Jean Fresnel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Augustin-Jean Fresnel (pronounced [freɪ 'nel] in AmE, [fʁɛ nɛl] in French) (May 10, 1788 – July 14, 1827), was a French physicist who contributed significantly to the establishment of the theory of wave optics.
Fresnel was the son of an architect, born at Broglie (Eure).
He is perhaps best known as the inventor of the Fresnel lens, first adopted in lighthouses while he was a French commissioner of lighthouses, and found in many applications today.

Equations 7a,b conflict with the fundamental rule of inequalities; consequently, equations 2 and 3 are invalid and cannot be used to derive Fresnel's T&R equations.
Equation 21 represents the energy emissions formed by the fl-body; however, heat (kinetic energies of gas molecules) is not included in Planck's fl-body intensity equation (equ 21) since the kinetic energies of gas molecules are not dependent on the frequency.
Fresnel assumes that the destructive interfering secondary wavelets' solve Huygens' secondary wavelet problem yet Fresnel's secondary wavelet also undergo constructive interference; consequently, when the wave fronts are formed, the constructive interfering secondary wavelets structure are ignored which forms Huygens-Fresnel's secondary wavelet problem.

Equations 7 is invalid; consequently, equations 2 and 3 cannot be used to derive Fresnel's TandR equations.
Planck was comparing equations 22 and 23 with the law of equipartition of energy equation yet the law of equipartition of energy equation was derived using Boltzmann's equation that was a function of the velocity (equ 19 and 20).
Planck's fl-body intensity equation (equ 25) represents the energy emissions formed by the fl-body; however, when the temperature is constant (T = 5000 degrees), heat (kinetic energies of gas molecules) is not included in Planck's fl-body intensity equation since the kinetic energies of gas molecules are not dependent on the frequency.

The wave theory of light is justified with Huygens principle, Fresnel's T&R equations, Maxwell's structure of light, Planck's flbox, Einstein's quanta, quantum mechanics, and QED.
A propagating plane wave forms an average field effect of zero, at the glass surface; therefore, Fresnel's derivation of the T&R equations uses non-propagating plane waves conflicts with the experimental propagation of light.
Maxwell's equations are used to derive an EM plane wave structure of light; however, Maxwell's structure of light is not a particle structure which conflict with the experimental results of the photoelectric effect of light.

On the board was the famous physicist Poisson who derived from Fresnel’s equations the strange result that a bright spot would form right in the middle of the shadow of a projected disc.
Fresnel continued his research and thanks to some of the results of others he formulated the “complete theory of polarized light, including the concepts of coherence, and elliptical polarization”; (1).
He formulated equations that allow one to calculate the reflected and transmitted light at a surface between two mediums of different refractive index at different angles of incidence.

 Fresnell's Equations: Reflection and Transmission
Fresnel's equations describe the reflection and transmission of electromagnetic waves at an interface.
For a dielectric medium where Snell's Law can be used to relate the incident and transmitted angles, Fresnel's Equations can be stated in terms of the angles of incidence and transmission.
Internal reflection implies that the reflection is from an interface to a medium of lesser index of refraction, as from water to air.

Lightwave 3D's Fresnel shaders get their name from the Fresnel Equations, which describe the reflection of light from surfaces.
In a nutshell, these equations say that the of light reflected from a surface increases as the angle of the light/viewer with the surface decreases.
The Fresnel equations actually describe the fractions of light reflected from and transmitted through a surface for two cases: when the light is polarized parallel the plane of incidence (defined by the surface normal, the incident, reflected, and transmitted light directions), and when the polarization is perpendicular to the plane of incidence.

There seems to be an incoherence on this page: while in the linked articles the transmission and reflection coeficient are defined as ratios of Amplitudes (in this case of the E-Field), the equations in this article seem to describe a ratio of intensities.
I've clarified that the equations refer to intensity coefficients.
I haven't checked the math here, but be aware that the form of the equations depends on an arbitrary choice of sign convention.

which is the same as the geodesic equation (6a).  A similar derivation shows that (1b) is equivalent to the geodesic equation (6b), so the two sets of equations of motion for light rays are identical.
With these equations we can compute the locus of rays emanating from any given point in a medium with arbitrarily varying index of refraction.  Of course, if the index of refraction is constant then the right hand sides of equations (6) vanish and the equations for light rays reduce to
However, when we postulate a Euclidean space with the radial parameter r we are neglecting the fact that the perimeter of a circle of radius r in this space does not have the value 2pr, so this is not an entirely self-consistent interpretation, as opposed to the usual "curvature" interpretation of general relativity.

 Wisp Unification Theory - almost the theory of everything
Both Einstein and Fresnel have produced equations that appear to give correct predictions for the speed of light moving through water, and we shall apply wisp’s velocity transformations to both sets of established equations.
By applying wisp theory to established equations that appear to give a correct prediction of the speed of light through moving water, we discover that the Earth’s motion causes the time difference term to increase by a small constant multiplying factor of 1.000265.
Equation set B.4 (lower) shows the corrected formula for measurements carried out on Earth (the water’s speed measurement vwater is relative to the Earth’s surface).

The main issue of the theories of light was to resolve whether it is a wave or a particle, and this proved to be a not a simple task.
One of our commissioners, M. Poisson, had deduced from the integrals reported by the author [Fresnel] the singular result that the centre of the shadow of an opaque circular screen must, when the rays penetrate there at incidences which are only a little more oblique, be just illuminated as if the screen did not exist.
He started out by being astonished from the fact that the equations of motion that seemed to describe electric phenomena appeared to be the same as the equations that described heat and water (fluids).
