Recent advances in numerical methods for solving the wave equation in the context of seismic depth imaging
The SMAI journal of computational mathematics, Volume S5 (2019) , pp. 47-65.

In this paper, we present the recent advances in using discontinuous Galerkin method for solving wave equation in the context of seismic depth imaging and full wave inversion. We show some examples and the way forward to some advanced schemes coupling different numerical approximations we believe will provide the necessary tools for building the next seismic depth imaging generation codes for TOTAL Exploration&Production. This contribution is linked to the mini symposium (MS) Mathematical tools in energy industry (organized at Arcachon during the 9th International conference Curves and Surfaces).
