For very shallow water, cnoidal wave theory was developed by Korteweg and de Vries (1895), (5) who derived an equation for shallow water waves called the KdV equation and expressed the solution by using elliptic functions.
Particle theory understands light as matter, whereas wave theory understands light as non-matter.
To validate the theoretical model previously developed will now conduct a comparison between the results obtained using the proposed matrix method (MM) with the ones obtained by using the coupled wave theory of Kogelnik (TK).
