Abstract
Phase-space procedure based on coherent state representation is proposed for investigation of reflection and transmission of wave beams at a curved dielectric boundary. Numerical simulations of reflection and transmission of light at various boundaries separating two different dielectrics are carried out. Significant influence of wave-front curvature and polarization of incident beam on the reflectance and transmittance is shown.
