Mathematical Methods for Seismic Imaging Course:


This course will be devoted to mathematical algorithms and methods for seismic imaging. We will first focus on high frequency asymptotic methods looking into kinematic and dynamic ray tracing. We will learn how to extrapolate wavefields efficiently and accurately. This includes looking at finite-difference, spectral, pseudo-spectral methods among other methods. We will look into the stable and accurate implementation of the imaging condition and its variations for velocity analysis. We will also look at numerical methods for inverting for the velocity model using seismic imaging.
