Numerical course in geophysics

  1. Dec 18, 2015 #1
    I am studying numerical and programming course in this semester, I was asked to know the applications of this course (numerical methods like Bisection, Newton Raphson, Secant, Simpson, Euler and Lagrange) in geophysics and how can I exploit these methods in seismic or in geophysics in general.

    There is a lot of use of numerical methods in seismic imaging. Have you been exposed to seismic imaging methods and algorithms yet? :smile:

    I have studied Seismic acquistion and processing and iterpretation courses and I see seismic sections
