Waveform inversion using the Wavefield Reconstruction Inversion (WRI) is a quadratic-penalty based method developed in our group and has shown to have advantages over the reduced Lagrangian based conventional FWI methods. WRI involves no explicit PDE solves, but a least-squares problem with a PDE block. This type of least-squares problem is very challenging to solve using iterative methods. In this talk we show algorithms we developed specifically for this application and which involve a combination of preconditioning, low-rank decomposition and deflation.
