Abstract. The paper considers an algorithm for the numerical modeling of the wave field in inhomogeneous inelastic Earth, constructed by using numerical-analytic method. The results of calculation of synthetic seismograms are represented.


Keywords: wave field, numerical modeling, inelastic Earth, seismic waves.
