In order to investigate the resonant interaction between three waves it is necessary to calculate the coupling coefficiento. This has previously been done by many authors for different cases. Reviews [e.g. 1,2] thus contain numerous references to basic works, In the present paper we will reconsider a general expression, found in reference [3], in order to demonstrate how it can be applied to particular situations. This is illustrated by means of four specific examples.
