20120136910 | Hardware And Method Of Numerical Integration - A system, method and chip for transforming data through a Rung-Kutta integration of a single point on a plane defined by X, Y, and Z values along X, Y and Z axes from a travel time data volume. The system includes at least one memory bank and at least one alternate memory bank and at least one single cycle Runge-Kutta travel time generator in communication with the memory banks. The single cycle Runge-Kutta travel time generator reads data from the at least one memory bank, and transforms the data by performing a Runge-Kutta integration on points of a plane defined by X, Y, and Z values along X, Y and Z axes in a travel time data volume and slowness data to generate another plane of values with the integration carried forward by a half step; and writes the data back to the at least one alternate memory bank. | 05-31-2012 |
