"A few years ago, it was my pleasure to review for the TLE this book's first edition, published in 2005.The present revised version is some 60 pages longer and contains several significant modifications. As is true of the original, the book continues to be one of the clearest as well as the most comprehensive elementary expositions of discrete geophysical inverse theory. It is ideally suited for beginners as well as a fine resource for those searching for a particular inverse problem. Each algorithm is presented in the form of pseudo-code, then backed up by a collection of MATLAB codes downloadable from an Elsevier Web site.All examples in the book are beautifully illustrated with simple, easy to follow "cartoon" problems, and all painstakingly designed to illuminate the details of a particular numerical method."--The Leading Edge, July 2012, page 860Reseña del editor:
"Parameter Estimation and Inverse Problems, 2/e" provides geoscience students and professionals with answers to common questions like how one can derive a physical model from a finite set of observations containing errors, and how one may determine the quality of such a model. This book takes on these fundamental and challenging problems, introducing students and professionals to the broad range of approaches that lie in the realm of inverse theory. The authors present both the underlying theory and practical algorithms for solving inverse problems. The authors' treatment is appropriate for geoscience graduate students and advanced undergraduates with a basic working knowledge of calculus, linear algebra, and statistics. "Parameter Estimation and Inverse Problems, 2/e" introduces readers to both Classical and Bayesian approaches to linear and nonlinear problems with particular attention paid to computational, mathematical, and statistical issues related to their application to geophysical problems. The textbook includes Appendices covering essential linear algebra, statistics, and notation in the context of the subject. This book includes a companion website that features computational examples (including all examples contained in the textbook) and useful subroutines using MATLAB. It: includes appendices for review of needed concepts in linear, statistics, and vector calculus; features a companion website that contains comprehensive MATLAB code for all examples, which readers can reproduce, experiment with, and modify; offers an online instructor's guide that helps professors teach, customize exercises, and select homework problems; and, is accessible to students and professionals without a highly specialized mathematical background.
