We want to prove that by applying (23) we also automatically shift the image by

The demonstration is carried out in two steps:
1) we compute the kinematics of the impulse
response of transformation (23)
by a stationary-phase approximation
of the inverse Fourier transform along *k*_{z} and *k*_{x},
and
2) we evaluate the dips of the impulse response, relate them to the
angles and , and then demonstrate
that relations (25) and (24)
are satisfied.

- Evaluation of the image shift as a function of and
