We construct a method for finding the elasticity parameters of an anisotropic homogeneous medium using only ray velocities and corresponding polarizations. We use a linear relation between the ray velocities and wavefront slownesses, which depends on the corresponding polarizations. Notably, this...
We compare two methods that determine the components of the elasticity tensor describing a Hookean solid: a method based on the wavefront-slowness and polarization measurements, and a method based on the ray-velocity and polarization measurements. The first method assumes a lateral homogeneity of...
