The reflection coefficient of bulk spin waves from a ferromagnetic multilayer with periodically modulated parameters of the exchange interaction, the uniaxial magnetic anisotropy and the saturation magnetization (a magnonic crystal) is calculated. The dependence of the reflection coefficient upon the spin wave frequency and the values of the bias magnetic field, the parameter of interfacial coupling, and the internal structure of the unit cell are investigated.
