Oux )~ --Ox-x+-O-z') +2Ix Ox Therefore, by substituting (114b) into (113) we can compute the coefficients (85-88) for non-poissonian media (non-poissonian formulation). 1. Computation of Coupling Coefficients in Non-Poissonian Media The transmission coupling coefficients have been computed for a 2-D structural model, M0, made up of the two lithospheric models C and P (see Figs. 8 and 9). 0, respectively. In the following, the fundamental mode is indicated by F, the poissonian formulations by P, and the non-poissonian formulations by NP.

As a consequence, the displacement field and the forces acting on the structure can be represented by two column vectors, each with dimensions equal to the number of nodal points for Love modes, and twice as big for Rayleigh modes. For Love modes, the equations of motion can be written in the matrix form [ M l { / i y } nt- [gl{uy} = {Q}, (56) where the matrices M and K are the mass and the force matrix, respectively, and contain information relative to (a) the elastic parameters of the model, (b) the excitation of one of the regular structures due to the seismic source, and (c) the boundary conditions.

The source of the elastic perturbation is placed at point O of medium M, and it generates at point P a direct wavefield V0(P). The wavefield diffracted in medium M' from interface S, separating M and M', can be described as a radiation generated by secondary sources distributed along the interface. Therefore the wavefield in P can be described as f V(P) - Vo(P) 4- Js cr(Q)G(P, Q)dQ, (58) where er(Q) is a density function of the source that represents the force of the wavefield diffracted from point Q, and G(P, Q) is the wavefield generated in P by a unit source placed in Q (it is also known as the Green function).
