re·flec·tion co·ef·fi·cient (σ),

a measure of the relative permeability of a particular membrane to a particular solute; calculated as the ratio of observed osmotic pressure to that calculated from van't Hoff law; also equal to 1 minus the ratio of the effective pore areas available to solute and to solvent.

In [11] a linear Schur invariant transformation with a free parameter was introduced in the discrete polynomial coefficient space, which gives a possibility of generalizing all of these stability conditions by the use of reflection coefficients.
Also, we assumed in this exercise that plant cells act like perfect osmometers with a reflection coefficient of [sigma] = 1.
Note that the logarithmic relationship between the reflection coefficient and ERL evident in Equation 3 indicates that increasing values of ERL follow from reflection coefficients that approach unity.
Equation (58) is a quasi-linear approximation of the output reflection coefficient under normal operating conditions, and is consistent with the definition of "Hot [S.
A reflection coefficient measured at a single frequency cannot resolve an SMC profile, because the reflection contains composite information `averaged' over the entire profile.
