In this section, a geometric interpretation of the noise
and data filters which appear in equation () is given.
The properties of the resolution operators are well known
Tarantola (1987).
The goal here is to extend these properties to the particular case of the
subtraction scheme proposed in equation (). But first,
it is useful to give some definitions.
