Lesson No. 29: Reflection from a Dipping Interface—Three-Dimensional Problem—Applications.
Published:January 01, 1959
Suppose that we have a section of a smooth curve C with limited curvature. The terms “smooth” and “limited curvature” imply concepts which, in the strict sense, require precise definition. Since, however, the considerable discussion to make these definitions precise would lead us astray, insofar as our purposes are concerned, we content ourselves in leaving the significance of these terms to our intuition.
This section of the smooth curve C is to be a portion of a time-distance curve of a seismic event for the straight-line interval indicated in Figure 83 as the x-axis between pickup positions Pl:Xl and P2:X2.

Lessons in Seismic Computing
“An elementary text and problem book containing 44 lessons in seismology arranged for selection or combination to cover the normal 36-week course, or for condensation into an 18-week course. The lessons begin without assuming more than secondary school mathematics. An elementary knowledge of calculus is desirable, though not required, for the last half of the book.”
