Building a regularization toolbox for FWI

A versatile procedure has been developed in the framework to ADMM-based WRI to interface different regularizations with the optimization algorithm where WRI is broken down into two successive linear subproblems. We adapt this procedure to regularize classical nonlinear FWI. This procedure is reviewed in the WIND Technical Report 1 for a vast catalogue of regularizer. A regularization toolbox based upon this approach is under development.
