Next: Acknowledgments Up: Biondi: Wave-equation MVA Previous: Computational cost


The theoretical framework I presented in Biondi (2010) can be extended from transmission-tomography problems to MVA problems. The computational cost of the proposed method can be high, though the cost of one iteration is comparable with the cost of one iteration of full waveform inversion. Numerical tests of the gradient operator and of the complete velocity-estimation method are needed.
