Seismic waveform inversion methods are techniques for quantitative subsurface imaging by fitting synthetic data to observed data. Waveform inversion has received a lot of attention over the last couple of decades, mainly due advances in high performance computing resources, among other things. In this seminar, I attempt to give a practical introduction to linearized and nonlinear waveform inversion. The word practical, here, is synonymous with "computer implementation". I focus on computer implementation, mostly, as the underlying theory can be found in many textbooks. Questions and comments are encouraged during and/or after the presentation.
