Sample Specialized Applications of Inverse Theory
The Earth has sounds for those who listen but the music is always distorted by some unwanted tunes and inverse problem theory provides us with the filters for enhancing and understanding these sounds; geophysidsts have mastered some of these sounds and axe therefore in tune with the Earth. This is the author's favourite description of geophysical signal processing to the uninitiated and the full import of this simplifying assertion will become obvious in the following discussions.

“This publication is designed to provide a practical understanding of leastsquares methods of parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis. The practical problems covered range from simple processing of time- and space-series data to inversion of potential field, seismic, electrical, and electromagnetic data. The various formulations are reconciled with field data in the numerous examples provided in the book; well-documented computer programs are also given to show how easy it is to implement inversion algorithms.”
