We consider numerical solution methods for seismic impedance inversion problems in this paper. The inversion process is ill-posed. To tackle the ill-posedness of the problem and take the sparsity of the reflectivity function into consideration, an l 1 norm regularization model is established. In computation, a nonmonotone gradient descent method based on Rayleigh quotient for solving the minimization model is developed. Theoretical simulations and field data applications are performed to verify the feasibility of our methods.

Keywords.: Impedance inversion; optimization; regularization
