Computation of interval velocity
We will now derive recursive algorithms for the computation of interval velocities using observed values of either NMO velocity KNMO or SAM velocity KSAM. Our initial considerations are confined to the purely mathematical aspects of solving this inverse traveltime problem. In later chapters, the more practical aspects will be discussed.

“Over the years, ray theory has furnished the exploration geophysicist with most of the working tools for understanding and interpreting events observed on reflection seismic sections. Even today, notwithstanding the pace at which the more powerful acoustic wave theory is introducing its new tools, ray theory, in the hands of the authors, retains its preeminence for providing insights into fundamental problems in reflection seismology. Professor Krey's earlier contributions are part of ray theory's rich heritage. Alongside C. Hewitt Dix and Hans Durbaum, he elucidated relationships between interval velocity and observed reflection moveout.”
