Efficient Algorithms for Helioseismic Inversion

This page provides an on-line version of my Ph.D. thesis "Efficient Algorithms for Helioseismic Inversion" from the Department of Computer Science, Århus University, Denmark. The thesis was submitted on November 1. 1998, and I received my degree on January 29. 1999.

As the thesis consists of a main part and several individual papers (made with different TeX style files and what not), I have decided to organize this page as a set of links, each pointing to a postscript version of a section of the thesis.
