(1.1)
in which forumla is the nth component of the ground displacement recorded at position forumla and time t; forumla is the ith component of slip (a discontinuity in displacement field) on the fault plane Σ at position ξ and time τ; νj is the jth component of the normal to fault plane, cijpq is the...
