Geophysical Data Analysis: Discrete Inverse Theory
- William Menke, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, Palisades, NY, USA
Since 1984, Geophysical Data Analysis has filled the need for a short, concise reference on inverse theory for individuals who have an intermediate background in science and mathematics. The new edition maintains the accessible and succinct manner for which it is known, with the addition of:
- MATLAB examples and problem sets
- Advanced color graphics
- Coverage of new topics, including Adjoint Methods; Inversion by Steepest Descent, Monte Carlo and Simulated Annealing methods; and Bootstrap algorithm for determining empirical confidence intervals
- Online data sets and MATLAB scripts that can be used as an inverse theory tutorial.
Graduate students and researchers in solid earth geophysics, seismology, atmospheric sciences and other areas of applied physics (e.g. image processing) and mathematics.
