Overview

Presenting a comprehensive introduction to the propagation of high-frequency body-waves in elastodynamics, this volume develops the theory of seismic wave propagation in acoustic, elastic and anisotropic media to allow seismic waves to be modelled in complex, realistic three-dimensional Earth models. The book is a text for graduate courses in theoretical seismology, and a reference for all academic and industrial seismologists using numerical modelling methods. Exercises and suggestions for further reading are included in each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This fine volume represents a welcome addition to the growing number of recent books dealing with various aspects of seismic wave propagation theory..a veritable treasure trove of seismic high-frequency forward modeling techniques. It will be a definitive reference work for a long time to come." The Leading Edge

"This is a significant accomplishment for what can easily be a difficult subject, and speaks volumes for the author's intimate expertise with the material." EOS-Transactions, AGU
