Analytical Approximations of the stationary point solutions

Although the numerical solutions are sufficient and efficient enough to perform prestack migration, analytical solutions are important for obtaining insights into the problem. Analytical representations are also important for inversion purposes where the solution is calculated multiple times for different medium parameters in an iterative fashion.
