Paper Abstract

In this paper a novel method for solution of the acoustic wave equation is presented. This method achieves the computational efficiency of the explicit methods while also offering the excellent numerical properties of the implicit methods, i.e., the unconditional stability. We discuss the mathematical foundation of this method as well as various numerical aspects such as inclusion of the absorbing boundary conditions and efficient parallel implementations.
