Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Computational Seismology and Geodynamics Series, Volume 5.

The Editorial Board of Computational Seismology and Geodynamics and the American Geophysical Union are again pleased to publish the fifth volume in this series.

The American Geophysical Union has been publishing selected and edited English translations of articles published in the well-known Russian journal Vychislitel'naya Seysmolgiya in Computational Seismology and Geodynamics since 1994. These volumes have made significant contributions in enhancing our knowledge in the geosciences. It is hoped this volume will play an equally significant role. Articles in the areas of Geodynamics, Forward Problems in Mathematical Physics, Inverse Problems and Seismicity models are presented in this volume. The Editorial Board thanks the reviewers of the manuscripts, and the Russian Editorial Board for their help and cooperation.
