Description:  
Inverse problems (Lanczos's decomposition, MoorePenrose matrix inverse, determination of seismic waves velocities using inverse method). Density, pressure and constants of elasticity in the Earth's interior (basics of density determination in the Earth's interior, AdamsWilliamson equation for the variation of density in mantle). Physics of seismic sources (causes of earthquakes, elastic rebound theory, strain energy before an earthquake, Clapeyron's form of strain energy density, faulting sources, equivalent body forces, radiation pattern). Elastostatics (static displacement field due to a single force, a force couple and a double couple). Elastodynamics (near and far field displacements, far field radiation patterns, seismic moment tensor). Earthquake magnitude (energy of earthquake waves, energy per unit area of wave front in an emerging wave, energy of body and surface waves, earthquake magnitude).
