We have shown that the Schoenberg-Muir calculus and the Dix equations share a common theoretical underpinning: both are equivalent-medium systems, and both can be derived in a similar way. The equivalent-medium formulation of the Dix model provides a convenient direct algorithm for finding the extension of the Dix equations to anisotropic layered-medium systems.
