General formulas describing field distributions and eigenvalue equations for both transverse-electric and transverse-magnetic modes are used to analyze symmetric periodic stratified media. The half-phase shifts are discussed, and the eigenvalue equations for even and odd modes are obtained. Numerical results for some special cases are also given.
