Extensions of the reflectivity method

Main Article Content

R. Kind


The reflectivity method for the computation of theoretical seismograms is extended to include a dislocation point source of arbitrary orientation buried in a layered medium. The second extension is a change in the numerical integration over the circular frequency in order to avoid time aliasing effects.
