NMO is based on the quadratic equation
*v ^{2}*

,which is the dispersion relation of the scalar wave equation. Stolt migration is NMO in the Fourier domain (see IEI). Denote the Fourier transform operator by and the Stolt operator by , where

A property of matrix adjoints is .We know the transpose of NMO, and we know that the adjoint of Fourier transformation is inverse Fourier transformation. So
