With the fast development of high-performance computing resources, imaging and inversion techniques in the exploration geophysics community are moving from simplified methods to more complex methods that honour as far as possible the physics of wave propagation. Multiparameter imaging and...
Proteins, which participate in virtually every process within cells, implement many of their functions through interactions with various ligands. Although a substantial effort in characterization and prediction of protein-ligand interactions was observed in the past two decades, these subjects...
An important step of seismic data processing entails signal de-noising. Traditional de-noising methods assume Gaussian noise model and their performance degrades in the presence of erratic (non-Gaussian) noise. This thesis examines the problem of designing reduced-rank noise attenuation...
