Simulating propagation of decoupled elastic waves using low-rank approximate mixed-domain integral operators for anisotropic media |

According to Zhang and McMechan (2010), one can decompose qP and qS modes in the elastic wavefields for a homogeneous anisotropic medium using:

where , , and the decomposition operators satisfy:

and

in which , and represent the -, - and -components of the normalized polarization vector of qP-wave.

As demonstrated by Cheng and Fomel (2014), one can decompose the wave modes in a heterogeneous anisotropic medium using the following mixed-domain integral operations:
