Title: Computations methods in Geophysics


Mathematical derivatives, since their birth within calculus in the last quarter of seventeenth century, have been occupying a most important place in almost every sphere of science.  They are fundamental to geophysical modelling and particularly potential field data analysis, from data presentation through to quantitative interpretation. But the challenges of robust and precise estimation of derivatives along with their implementation are many. This presentation will review some of those challenges, how to minimize errors and provide insight into many of their applications.
