(6) is as follows: X [intersection] Z is the union of a Poisson number (mean v(Z)) of independent objects of the form [[tau].sub.[??]]A where A is distributed like [F.sup.Z] and [??] is a uniform point over [[delta].sub.A]Z.
Proposition 1 X [intersection] Z is the union of a Poisson number (mean v(Z)) of typical objects hitting Z.

The compression wave propagates in the direction of the normal line of contact x at dilation speed [c.sub.1] the magnitude of which depends on modules E and G, Poisson number [eta], Lame constant [[lambda].sub.1] and density [rho].
where [E.sub.seis] is Young's modulus of elasticity determined by a seismic way, v is Poisson number and p is bulk density of a medium.
