Migration preconditioning with curvelets. Moghaddam, Peyman P.; Herrmann, Felix J.


In this paper, the property of Curvelet transforms for preconditioning the migration and normal operators is investigated. These operators belong to the class of Fourier integral operators and pseudo-differential operators, respectively. The effect of this preconditioner is shown in term of improvement of sparsity, convergence rate, number of iteration for the Krylov-subspace solver and clustering of singular(eigen) values. The migration operator, which we employed in this work is the common-offset Kirchoff-Born migration.
