advent of larger and more complex datasets, the solution of inverse problems is
becoming increasingly relevant in modern geophysics. In this course, as well as
learning the fundamentals of inverse theory and statistics, students will be
exposed to cutting edge methods used in a wide variety of applied geophysics
problems, from receiver function analysis to full waveform inversion. A solid
knowledge of statistics is required to properly understand modern geophysical
inversion theory, which is why the two components of the course work well
