  author={D. Pei and John N. Louie and Satish K. Pullammanappallil},
Among many improvements on phase velocity computation of Rayleigh waves in a layered earth model, the methods based on R/T (reflection and transmission) coefficients produce stable and accurate phase velocities for both low and high frequencies and are appropriate for viscoelastic and anisotropic media. The generalized R/T coefficient methods are not the most efficient algorithms. This paper presents a new, more efficient algorithm, called the fast generalized R/T coefficient method, to… CONTINUE READING
