The purpose is to find properties in the earth such as wave velocity and location of reflecting sub layers, which are represented by the coefficients in the PDE. We propose using optimal transport and the Wasserstein metric for this miss-match in order to reduce the risk of only finding local minima in the PDE constrained minimization. The optimal transport can be given by the gradient of the solution to a Monge–Ampère equation. Numerical examples comparing these new techniques with the classical L2 miss-match will be presented. <br><br> Refreshments and reception in 536 Ewing Hall • 4:30pm11/16/2018 8:30:00 PM11/16/2018 9:30:00 PMFalse
