(C) Non-linear waveform inversion

The basic procedure for non-linear waveform inversion is similar to the linearized iterative migration/inversion. It is worth mentioning again that the Frechèt derivative in the non-linear waveform inversion is quite different from the propagator after the Born approximation in the linearized migration/inversion.
