Ilya Tsvankin

Course notes, Colorado School of Mines

Ily Book Cover

The notes are devoted to asymptotic and numerical analysis of point-source radiation in horizontally layered isotropic media with an emphasis on the physics of wave propagation. Includes a detailed discussion of wave phenomena not accounted for by the standard ray theory. Covers material from the second semester of a two-semester seismological course (GPGN553, Introductory Seismology - II) that the author teaches in the Geophysics Department at CSM. 100 pages and 27 figures.
