Provocative Perspectives on Healing

items worth a trip to the library

by Stephen Drew, AIR staff

Medical research is in many cases concerned with healing. Here are some projects that have received too little attention.

Banana vs. Doughnut, Chapter 86

"Wavefront Healing: a Banana\Doughnut Perspective," S.H. Hung, F.A. Dahlen, and Guust Nolet, Geophysical Journal International, vol. 146, no. 2, August 2001, pp. 289-312. (Thanks to Tom Gill for bringing this to our attention.) The authors explain that:

a 3-D banana-doughnut Fréchet kernel does account for wavefront healing because it is cored by a tubular region of negligible traveltime sensitivity along the source–receiver geometrical ray.
