P-SV wave propagation in a radially symmetric vertically inhomogeneous TI medium: Finite difference hybrid method

P.F. Daley

ABSTRACT

The hybrid finite difference - finite integral transform method is considered for the coupled P - SV wave propagation problem in a radially symmetric vertically inhomogeneous (plane layered) transversely isotropic medium. Apart from the development of the equations of motion, a number of numerical considerations are addressed. As in most problems where numerical methods are employed in the solution, there are several areas that are given special attention to indicate how to improve run times and accuracy.
