My final electromagnetic software version is called CSEMoMatic - Omnium. The Latin word ‘Omnium’ was chosen because it roughly translates in English to “for all”. The CSEMoMatic software has publically integrated Dipole1D (Key, 2009a) and AMIRA’s 3D Integral Equation Marco (Xiong, 1992) algorithms. A number of proprietary algorithms have been developed and integrated into a proprietary versions including Hursan and Zhdanov (2002) 3D integral equation algorithm INTEM3D, a quasi-analytical inversion algorithm QAINV (Zhdanov et al., 2000) and a 2.5D irregular finite difference modelling Otze (Scholl and Sinkevich, 2012). Considerable work has been placed into CSEMoMatic. Overall approximately 100,000 lines of Java code have been written by myself for all the versions of CSEMoMatic.
