transfer-matrix method

[′tranz·fər ‚mā·triks ‚meth·əd]
(mechanics)
A method of analyzing vibrations of complex systems, in which the system is approximated by a finite number of elements connected in a chainlike manner, and matrices are constructed which can be used to determine the configuration and forces acting on one element in terms of those on another.
