The transmission and reflection of light by a ferromagnetic structure with a noncollinear orientation of the magnetization vectors of layers lying in the plane of the film is considered. The characteristic matrix of the structure that relates the wave amplitudes at the entrance to the system and at the exit from it and that determines the magnetooptical properties of the structure is calculated. The magnetooptical characteristics of this structure are shown to significantly depend on the angle between the magnetization vectors of layers and on the number of layers. Both the magnitude and the character of these dependences are analyzed in relation to the angle of incidence and to the polarization of the incident wave. Such an analysis makes it possible to optimize the magnetooptical properties of this structure.
