I have a question that is fairly trivial. I just can't seem to get it together. I have a plane wave that's travelling in the positive z-direction. And it travels through 3 different mediums, with medium 2 being a dielectric slab. My question is: How do I write the electric and magnetic field of the plane wave inside the slab? I know how to write the incident and reflective fields, as well as the transmitted field in medium 3. but I just can't seem to express the electric and magnetic field through medium 2. Some advise would be appreciated.

Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus. Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat.

someone has very kindly posted their notes on this http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/JuliaYeomans/3ElectromagneticWaves.pdf
i have actually scan-read them and they look good if you need help, i am sure i could hack away at this and make it make some sense.
Thank you @IrishBoy123 I'll have a look at them and get back to you if I have any more questions. I just don't know what's wrong. I can write them down in the case with only two mediums. But not with three. It's so weird...

if i can't help, i know people who can :p cheers
Wow thanks dude. Much appreciated. I'll let you know ^^
@IrishBoy123 If I wish to write the equations for the electric and magnetic field for a plane wave inside a slab of thickness a say. How do you think I should express them so as to make them understandable? Should I write them the same as for the incident, reflected and transmitted plane wave equation, exponential form. Or do you think it would be better to write it as : \[ Asin(kz−ωt)+Bcos(kz−ωt)\] You said you knew someone who might be able to help? Think you could ask them? :)
you should talk to @Michele_Laino or @Astrophysics about this
Will do, thanks.
