Outline Introduction: Physical wavelet Time-slicing and depth-slicing of 4-D data Physical wavelet defined on observation planes: Dreamlet Dreamlet and beamlet propagator and imaging Applications Conclusion
Introduction Wavefield or seismic data are special data sets. They cannot fill the 4-D space-time in arbitrary ways. Wave solutions can only exist on the light cone (hyper-surface) in the 4D Fourier space defined by dispersion relation. Physical wavelet is a localized wave solution by extending the light cone into complex causal tube. dreamlet can be considered as a type of physical wavelet defined on an observation plane (data plane on the earth surface or extrapolation planes at depth z in the migration/imaging process).
Physical wavelet Physical wavelet: localized wave field defined in the 4-dimensional time-space, satisfies the wave equation: – Globally for homogeneous media; – Locally for inhomogeneous media Localized by analytic extension to the complex 4-D time-space Only exit on the causal tube (nature of wave solution)
Special features of seismic data Seismic data are special data sets. They cannot fill the 4-D space-time in arbitrary ways. The time-space distributions must observe causality which is dictated by the wave equation. Wave solutions can only exist on the light cone (hyper-surface) in the 4D Fourier space. Often the data are only available on the surface of the earth (the observation plane)
4D Fourier domain 4D space-time domain Wavefield data are solutions from the wave equation:
where space-time four-vector wavenumber-frequency four-vector by the wave equation absolute value of frequency Lorentz-invariant scalar product Measure on the light-cone (Minkowski measure)
Construction of localized wave solutions Kaiser 1994 (Analytic signal transform) Kiselev and Perel, 2000; Perel and Sidorenko, 2007 (Continuous wavelet transform)
To construct the wavelets (localized wave solution) (Physical wavelet ), extend from the real space-time to the causal tube in complex space-time, by applying the analytic-signal transform where is the unit step function and Is an acoustic wavelet (physical wavelet)
Analytic Signal Transform and Windowing in the Fourier domain is an acoustic wavelet of order in the Fourier domain. the AST can be looked as a windowing in the Fourier domain (windowed Fourier transform)
Two different decomposition schemes For time-slices: All the space-axis are symmetric: e.g. Curvelet Depth-slices: Time-axis and space axes are different and need to be treated differently: e.g. Pulsed-beam; wavepacket; Dreamlet (Drumbeat-beamlet)
Dreamlet: A type of physical wavelet defined on observation planes (data planes) Wu et al., 2008; 2009; 2011 (SEG abstracts)
Dreamlet (localized time-space solution of wave equation) Dreamlet: Physical wavelet on a plane x=(x,y) Time-space wavelet (directional wavepacket, “pulsed beam”) through dispersion relation: :Drumbeat;:Beamlet
Construction of dreamlet atoms: Drumbeat (t-f atom) beamlet (x-k atom) Windowing in frequency and horizontal wavenumber domains Windowing on the light-cone (through the dispersion relation)
Dreamlet = Wavepacket Windowing on the light cone
Integration on the light-cone On the light cone we have ( and k as variables) New measure on the light-cone The integration on the light cone for wave solution:
Discrete wavelet atoms obtained by windowing on the light-cone Dreamlets Discrete wavelet transform (Orthogonal or sparse frame) vs. Continuous wavelet transform

Conclusion Wave solutions can only exist on the light cone in the 4D Fourier space defined by the dispersion relation Physical wavelet defined by Kaiser is a localized wave solution by extending the light cone into complex causal tube. The effect is windowing on the light-cone. Dreamlet can be considered as a type of discrete physical wavelet defined on an observation plane
Conclusion-continued Curvelet is good for decomposition of time- slice 4-D data; while dreamlet is good for depth-slice 4-D data. Causality (or dispersion relation) built into the wavelet (dreamlet) and propagator is a distinctive feature of physical wavelet which is advantageous for applications in wave data decomposition, propagation and imaging.
Conclusion-continued The applications in illumination, true- reflection imaging, local angle domain analysis, imaging in compressed domain are only in the beginning.
