Geophysical inversion with a neighbourhood algorithm - II. Appraising the ensemble

Sambridge, Malcolm

Description

Monte Carlo direct search methods, such as genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, etc., are often used to explore a finite-dimensional parameter space. They require the solving of the forward problem many times, that is, making predictions of observables from an earth model. The resulting ensemble of earth models represents all 'information' collected in the search process. Search techniques have been the subject of much study in geophysics; less attention is given to the appraisal of the...[Show more]
