When I worked on the common reflection surface stack, one of our biggest issues was selecting the proper optimization algorithms. There are so many for global problems! The book tries to browse through several classical algorithms.
This is the first time I will review a book on something I’m not familiar with at all. I’ve started now for more than two months a new job related to geophysics, and I had to catch up with my colleagues.
I’ve stopped studying geology ten years ago, so this is a review from someone who is learning geophysics and who wants to have a quick and global look on the different fields of geophysics.
