Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the problem of the transmission of plane acoustic waves through a penetrable inhomogeneous body with an impenetrable core. Firstly, we discretize the inhomogeneous body via means of a multi-layer, multi- subdivision approach. Then, we prove the uniqueness and existence of solutions to this problem. Finally, we conclude with a discussion of potential applications and what remains to be done.
