### Reviews

This book is highly recommended to those wanting to learn about state-of-the-art optimization methods. It is reasonably certain that these methods will continue to be applied to geophysical inversions. Therefore, this text should be added to the library of any reasearch geophysicist.

Larry Lines, The Leading Edge, 1997

The book is well organized and self contained. The objectives set by the authors are well met. Every chapter and section starts with an introduction that outlines the upcoming material to discuss. The book will be a valuable source for researchers and students in geophysical sciences as well as in nonlinear optimization. The detailed index and the bibliography enhance the usefulness of this book.

Panos M. Pardalos, University of Florida, Journal of Global Optimization, 1997

Assume only a fundamental mathematical background that includes linear algebra and calculus. Suitable as a text for a one-semester graduate course in geophysical inversion.
