In this section, we imitate a miniature SEP research paper. At SEP, such a research paper not only includes an article with figures, equations, and references, but also a set of accompanying programs, input data, and makefiles. In its electronic form such a research document enables the reader to reproduce the results that the document presents Schwab et al. (1996).

The research document that we embedded for documentation purposes
implements Normal Moveout, a standard seismic processing step. The
equation that governs the Normal Moveout is a mapping from time *t* to
zero-offset time *t _{0}*

(1) |

where *h* is the offset and *V* the subsurface velocity. We copied
the underlying program and the following result from Jon
Claerbout 1991.
