** Previous:** Amplitude-preserving AMO

I presented an amplitude-preserving function for the AMO operator
that enables accurate implementation of an AMO algorithm on
regularly sampled data. The derivation of the amplitude is consistent
with the definition of most interpreters for preserving peak
amplitudes of reflection events.
Numerical experiments showed that an AMO operator based on
Zhang's DMO cascaded with its true inverse best reconstructs data amplitudes.
The new amplitude function defines
an amplitude-preserving azimuth moveout.
