Analytical models based on normal-mode theory have been successfully employed for decades in the modeling of global response of the Earth to seismic dislocations, postglacial rebound and wave propagation. Despite their limited capabilities with respect to fully numerical approaches, they are yet a valuable modeling tool, for instance in benchmarking applications or when automated procedures have to be implemented, as in massive inversion problems when a large number of forward models have to be solved. The availability of high-performance computer systems ignited new applications for analytical modeling, allowing to remove limiting approximations and to carry out extensive simulations on large global datasets.
