Abstract [en]

The inverse problem involving a point pulse source exterior to a scattering medium, where the velocity c(x) is continuous, is considered. The layer stripping approach is applied to thin curvilinear layers whose surfaces are the primary wave fronts [with c(x) continuous, the reflected wave fronts will be secondary, i.e., of lower order singularity]. It is shown that the layer stripping approach can be used in the time-domain inverse problem without employing the added complexity of having to perform wave splitting. Furthermore the procedure to determine the normal derivative of c from the asymptotic short time behavior of the field quantities on an adjacent wave front surface has been simplified compared to earlier wave splitting methods. Uniqueness results are given.
