Are you referring to fresnel zones or near field diffraction?

I mean Fresnel's equations that describe the reflection and transmission of electromagnetic waves at an interface.

Check any good book on electromagnetics.
Hecht's book "Optics" has very good drawings that help understand the different polarizations.

Or you could start with Wikipedia.

You may refer to section 9.3.3 in Introduction to Electrodynamics by Griffiths it treats reflection from dielectric boundaries in a nice way and the same book has a section on the boundary conditions for electromagnetic wave at the end of chapter 7. For a quick discussion you may refer to the following link:
However be warned that it makes use of some approximations.
