Mathematical Foundations of Reflected Wave Imaging
Symes, William W.
The goal of these notes is to provide a consistent mathematical foundation for wave imaging - the production of images from measurements of reflected waves in heterogeneous media. This account is inspired mostly by reflection seismology. Ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation, ultrasonic biomedical imaging, ocean acoustics, and radar also provide wave imaging problems, though generally not involving the very large data sets and extremely heterogeneous media characteristic of reflection seismology. Our aim is to provide a coherent mathematical derivation of wave imaging techniques, not detailed descriptions of complete algorithms or extensive analysis of performance. For the latter sort of information we refer the reader to the vast literature of reflection seismology, to which we have provided some introductory references.
