The problem on diffraction of discontinuous waves at paraboboloid interfaces between transversally isotropic elastic media has been considered. Numerical algorithms for realization of ray method of reflected and refracted waves fronts construction have been proposed. The cases of focusing and scattering the discontinuous waves by free surfaces, interfaces, lenses and curved interlayers have been investigated.
