The decomposition of the wave field into optimized Gaussian packets is of key importance in the Gaussian packet migration. We present the theoretical basics and a set of numerical examples of our method.
Gaussian packet, Gabor function, coherent-state transform, prestack depth migration, common-shot gather.
