Mathematics Colloquia and Seminars
Numerical simulations in geophysical data interpretationPDE and Applied Math Seminar
|Speaker:||Prof. Hitoshi Mikada, Junichi Takekawa, and Rei Tamura, Kyoto University|

We are developing numerical simulation methodologies for understanding earth-scientific phenomena using wave theories, rock physics, and petrophysics. What we have achieved in a past couple years could be classified into three categories:
1) particle based approaches in hydrodynamics and in rock physics;
2) a finite difference method (FDM) in frequency domain; and 3) time-lapse
FDM based on Born-approximation. In the seminar, we would like to take these
examples to discuss the importance of numerical simulation for understanding
our objectives to deepen the knowledge of subsurface physical processes.
The principle speaker will share his time with the two co-authors for this presentation.
