Phase shift operator

Apply positive (forward) phase shift with constant velocity in forward mode, and negative (backward) phase shift with constant velocity in adjoint mode. Input model and data should be 2- or 3-dimensional arrays in time-space domain of size \([n_t \times n_x \;(\times n_y)]\).

Phase shift operator


The phase shift operator implements a one-way wave equation forward propagation in frequency-wavenumber domain by applying the following transformation to the input model:

\[d(f, k_x, k_y) = m(f, k_x, k_y) e^{-j \Delta z \sqrt{\omega^2/v^2 - k_x^2 - k_y^2}}\]

where \(v\) is the constant propagation velocity and \(\Delta z\) is the propagation depth. In adjoint mode, the data is propagated backward using the following transformation:

\[m(f, k_x, k_y) = d(f, k_x, k_y) e^{j \Delta z \sqrt{\omega^2/v^2 - k_x^2 - k_y^2}}\]

Effectively, the input model and data are assumed to be in time-space domain and forward Fourier transform is applied to both dimensions, leading to the following operator:

\[\mathbf{d} = \mathbf{F}^H_t \mathbf{F}^H_x \mathbf{P} \mathbf{F}_x \mathbf{F}_t \mathbf{m}\]

where \(\mathbf{P}\) perfoms the phase-shift as discussed above.
