Abstract: We consider the problem of estimating discontinuous coefficients, including locations of discontinuities, that occur in second-order hyperbolic systems typical of those arising in 1-D surface seismic problems. In addition, we treat the problem of identifying unknown parameters that appear in boundary conditions for the system. A spline-based approximation theory is presented, together with related convergence findings and representative numerical examples.
