A procedure for the calculation of the acoustic reflection coefficient at the liquid/solid interface is proposed which is suitable for easy implementation with Mathematica. The solid can be a layered substrate, and the layers and the substrate can be anisotropic. Acoustic reflection coefficients are shown for water/quartz and water/gold/quartz interfaces. Keywords: wave reflection; Rayleigh waves; water; quartz; gold; surface acoustic waves
