Nonlinear tomographic reconstruction algorithms are developed for inversion of traveltime measurements in scattering experiments in which data models are derived from an arbitrarily large (possibly infinite) number of terms in the perturbation solution to the ray or eikonal equations. The algorithms attain the form of a Volterra series of nonlinear operators, with the usual linear reconstruction algorithm of traveltime tomography as the leading term. A computer simulation study is included to illustrate the performance of the algorithms for the case of scattering objects with cylindrical symmetry
