New methods for the fast, accurate and efficient calculation of large classes of seismic rays joining two points x+s and x_R in very general two-dimensional configurations are presented. The medium is piecewise homogeneous with arbitrary interfaces separating regions of different elastic properties (i.e., differing wave speeds c_P and c_S). In general there are 2^(N+1) rays joining x_S to x_R while making contact with N interfaces. Our methods find essentially all such rays for a given N by… CONTINUE READING
