An abstract analysis of differential semblance optimization
Differential Semblance Optimization (DSO) is a novel way of approaching a class of inverse problems arising in exploration seismology. The promising feature of the DSO method is that it replaces a nonsmooth, highly nonconvex ...
Wave propagation in randomly layered media with an application to time reversal
We describe the propagation of acoustic waves through randomly layered media over distances much larger than the typical wavelength of a pulse that is emitted from a point source. The layered medium is modeled by a smooth ...
On a transmission inverse problem
In crosswell seismic experiments, seismic sources are fired in one well, and the wave-fields generated are measured in another well. The goal of the crosswell seismology is to find physical parameters, especially the ...
Spectral Properties of Limit-Periodic Schrodinger Operators
We investigate spectral properties of limit-periodic SchrÃ¶dinger operators in [cursive l] 2 ([Special characters omitted.] ). Our goal is to exhibit as rich a spectral picture as possible. We regard limit-periodic potentials ...
