The jump conditions that hold across singular surfaces for the fields having step function discontinuities do not, in general, apply if these surfaces themselves carry concentrated fields. In this note, the general situation when the surfaces of discontinuity carry multilayers and deform as they propagate is discussed. Formulas are presented for the first and second derivatives for these multilayers. © 1985.
