The operator that destroys two dips is a product in Fourier space or a convolution in (t,x)-space. The convolution is
a v b w 1 c x d y e zAfter finding the coefficients, this filter can be applied on a mesh with both t and x interleaved. We are somewhat at the mercy of the regression procedure that determines all the coefficients in the filter. We have not imposed the constraint that the filter be a dip filter, so maybe it will be something undesirable in addition to being a dip filter. If the dip spectrum has nonzero bandwidth, the filter can't be exactly right, but it may perform adequately. We should try it. Perhaps it will work the way it is or perhaps we need to find some way to limit the number of free parameters in the differencing star to force it to fit the mold of a narrow banded dip filter.
