The biorthogonal multiresolution time-domain (Bi-MRTD) method is introduced for the analysis of elastic-wave interaction with buried targets. We provide a detailed discussion on implementation of the perfectly matched layer and on treatment of the interface between two different materials. The algorithm has also been parallelized by the use of the message-passing interface. The numerical results show that numerical dispersion can be significantly improved by using biorthogonal wavelets as bases, as compared to the conventional pulse expansion employed in the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. We demonstrate that with comparison to the second-order FDTD, the Bi-MRTD yields significant CPU time and memory savings for large problems, for a fixed level of accuracy.
