Let us repeat basic definitions from Claerbout's paper.
A truncated Taylor series of the normal moveout equation is given by
the equation:
| |
(1) |

The *N*^{th} partial normal moveout is given by the equation:
| |
(2) |

The *N*^{th} partial normal moveout can be applied *N* times:
| |
(3) |

The equation to be proved is
| |
(4) |

i.e., normal moveout can be expressed as a superposition
of *N* *N*^{th} partial normal moveouts with arbitrary precision as
.
