The present book-which is the third, significantly revised edition of the textbook originally published by Elsevier Science-emphasizes the interdependence of mathematical formulation and physical meaning in the description of seismic phenomena. Herein, we use aspects of continuum mechanics, wave theory and ray theory to explain phenomena resulting...

... Remark 2: As mentioned, the form of the Lagrangian is not unique. Moreover, The Lagrangian is usually defined for the traveltime as the flow (characteristic) parameter, rather than the arclength (e.g., Červený 2000, 2002aand 2002bSlawinski 2015). In Part II we elaborate on the alternative Lagrangians and their relation to the proposed one. ...
