The problem of fitting material properties on earth to certain models by analysing returned seismic signals are investigated here. Analysis proceeds with inverse methods. Seismic wave inversion is tackled by minimisation of objective function with respect to model parameters. Absorbing boundary conditions are implemented using an exponentially decaying ansatz.
