Extending so far that some of the boundaries have no effect. Thus a **semi-infinite slab** is a horizontal unit of finite thickness bounded by a vertical plane on one side but extending so far in other directions that the boundaries in those directions create no measurable effects. A **semi-infinite prism** is a vertical prism with a bottom so remote as to not affect measurements. See Figure M-15.
