Numerical solution of the linearized inverse problem for acoustic equation



In this paper we develop an algorithm of numerical solution of the inverse dynamical problem about speed of sound reconstruction in horizontally layered acoustical medium. The solution is based on linearized version of the Boundary Control Method. The inverse data is the response at the single boundary point from the boundary point source; the probe pulse is the Ricker wavelet. The results of numerical modeling for two-dimensional domain are presented.
