In contrast to waveguide propagation, antiwaveguide propagation of sound occurs when a ray leaving a source never returns to the depth of its source. An example of antiwaveguide propagation is given in Fig. 1.8. Here we shall consider this kind of propagation for two different cases, i.e. depending on whether the velocity gradient dc/dz at an antiwaveguide axis is nonzero (Sect. 8.1) or equals zero (Sects. 8.2, 3).
