Traveltime computation with the linearized eikonal equation

  title={Traveltime computation with the linearized eikonal equation},
  author={Sergey Fomel},
Traveltime computation is an important part of seismic imaging algorithms. Conventional implementations of Kirchhoff migration require precomputing traveltime tables or include traveltime calculation in the innermost computational loop . The cost of traveltime computations is especially noticeable in the case of 3-D prestack imaging where the input data size increases the level of nesting in computational loops.
