In this Appendix I present the analytical expressions
for the derivatives of the group slowness function
with respect to the velocityperturbation parameters
.These derivatives depend
on the particular form chosen to approximate
the slowness function.
In this paper I use following approximation of the VTI slowness function
Fowler (2003):
 

 (36) 
where
 
(37) 
is the elliptical component.
The derivatives are then written as:
 
(38) 
 (39) 
 (40) 
where the derivatives of the elliptical component with
respect to and are:
