Wave methods for an inverse problem in diffusion

  title={Wave methods for an inverse problem in diffusion},
  author={Alan Carl Pierce},
The usual inverse problem in petroleum reservoir engineering seeks rock permeability and porosity distributions from data on fluid property, well pressure and production rate. A simple, but potentially useful, specialisation considers flow of a single fluid phase along radial lines to a single well. An approach to this diffusion problem is presented, following an analogy to an existing one for wave propagation problems. This development is based on a parallel to the progressing wave expansion… CONTINUE READING
