The aim in this chapter is to explore the basic properties of wave-fields produced by a small number of rays. A mathematical approach is used to derive the basic equations defining the fields and the interpretation of the equations is then illustrated by means of computer-produced plots. Some of the results to be presented can be found in published DF literature, but the author knows of no book or paper where the theory is developed systematically. The main emphasis will be on the properties of fields in the ground plane, z = 0.
