Inverse problem theory - and methods for model parameter estimation
This chapter discusses Monte Carol methods, the least-absolute values criterion and the minimax criterion, and their applications to functional inverse problems.

Inversion of seismic reflection data in the acoustic approximation
The nonlinear inverse problem for seismic reflection data is solved in the acoustic approximation. The method is based on the generalized least‐squares criterion, and it can handle errors in the data
Generalized Nonlinear Inverse Problems Solved Using the Least Squares Criterion (Paper 1R1855)
We attempt to give a general definition of the nonlinear least squares inverse problem. First, we examine the discrete problem (finite number of data and unknowns), setting the problem in its fully
Monte Carlo sampling of solutions to inverse problems
In inverse problems, obtaining a maximum likelihood model is usually not sucient, as the theory linking data with model parameters is nonlinear and the a posteriori probability in the model space may not be easy to describe.
Inverse problems = Quest for information
We examine the general non-linear inverse problem with a nite number of parameters. In order to permit the incorporation of any a priori information about parameters and any distribution of data (not
Inverse Problem Theory
This is the first of a series of papers giving the solution of the inverse problem in seismic exploration. The acoustic approximation is used together with the assumption that the velocity field has

A strategy for nonlinear elastic inversion of seismic reflection data
The problem of interpretation of seismic reflection data can be posed with sufficient generality using the concepts of inverse theory. In its roughest formulation, the inverse problem consists of
