Summary
"During the past 40 years geophysicists have developed many techniques, (called collectively "migration") for imaging geologic structures deep within the Earth's subsurface. Beyond merely imaging strata, migration can provide information about important physical properties of rocks, necessary for the subsequent drilling and development of oil- and gas-bearing formations within the Earth. The advancement of such technologies requires an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the mathematical physics of wave propagation. This text is the first to treat many kinds of migration in a unified mathematical way. The intended audience of the book, mathematically oriented geophysicists and applied mathematicians, will find the text useful as a guide to the subject of "inverse scattering imaging." The text can serve as a bridge between the applied math and geophysics communities by presenting geophysicists with a practical introduction to advanced engineering mathematics, while presenting mathematicians with a window into the world of the mathematically sophisticated geophysicist."--Jacket
