Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Computational Seismology and Geodynamics Series, Volume 8.

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Editorial Board of Computational Seismology and Geodynamics (CSG) are happy to present the eighth volume of CSG. This volume contains 19 selected, translated, and reviewed articles of volumes 33 and 34 of Vychislitel'naya Seismologiya (VS), which deal with seismicity and seismic hazard, forward and inverse problems in seismology, geodynamics, geomagnetism, and self-organized criticality.

The Russian annual journal Vychislitel'naya Seysmologiya was established in 1966 by Volodya Keilis-Borok, one of most eminent geophysicists of our time, as a media for publication of the best results in the theoretical, computational and mathematical seismology. For a short period of time the journal had become a prominent and known among mathematical geophysicists around the world. In 1970s the journal began to publish also articles related to non-linear dynamics and earthquake prediction and later to computational geodynamics. Many distinguished seismologists, geophysicists, and mathematicians, like G. Barenblatt, A. Dziewonski, I. Gelfand, H. Huppert, H. Kanamori, L. Kantorovich, L. Knopoff, F. Press, D. Turcotte, and others, published their research articles in VS. Twenty-one volumes of the journal were translated and published by Allerton Press, USA. Since 1994 AGU agreed to publish selected and peer-reviewed articles in volumes entitled CSG.

Volume 1 (159 pp.) 1994 selected articles from Volumes 22 & 23

Volume 2 (188 pp.) 1994 selected articles from Volumes 24 & 25

Volume 3 (236 pp.) 1996 selected articles from Volumes 26 & 27

Volume 4 (200 pp.) 1999 selected articles from Volumes 28 & 29

Volume 5 (132 pp.) 2003 selected articles from Volume 30

Volume 6 (102 pp.) 2004 selected articles from Volume 31

Volume 7 (250 pp.) 2005 selected articles from Volume 32

Volume 8 (186 pp.) 2008 selected articles from Volumes 33 & 34
