The information about Dr. A. P. Prishivalko's work was furnished by Professor Dr. Antonín Vašiček, University Brno, Czeckoslavakia, who also supplied a copy of the former's book which contained the tables. The author is deeply indebted to Dr. Vašíček for these kindnesses.
Background details and complete sequence of equations on which this discussion is based can be found in Ref. 2.
Expressions for the first and second Brewster angles can be obtained by differentiation of expressions based on Eqs. (2) and (3). To do this, however, requires tedious analytical labor, and it has previously been considered impossible to solve this problem explicitly (Refs. 20, 21) so that only approximations were sought. The problem found new consideration recently, and was explicitly solved for the first Brewster angle by Humphreys-Owen13 and for the second Brewster angle by Potter.22

R. de L. Kronig [Nature, Feb. 10, 211 (1934)] obtained, for potassium, N = 0.294–0.0058i for λ = 2727 Å.
Felix Jentzsch-Gräfe [Verhandl. Deut. Phys. Ges. 21, 361, (1919)] thoroughly investigated the minimum reflectance of natural light for real index of refraction. His paper presented an exact mathematical formulation for this case and tabulated the values for θ0 and R=min from n=3.7321 to n=9.507.
