One illustrative computer-based wave field simulation method includes: applying at least one signal to a grid of model cells forming a model space, each model cell having stress values associated with stress nodes and velocity values associated with velocity nodes staggered from the stress nodes; and propagating the at least one signal as a wave into the model space by alternately updating the stress values and the velocity values to obtain a time-dependent wave field associated with the at least one signal.

Method of operating non-volatile memory device


A method of operating a non-volatile memory device including first buffer memory cells and main memory cells, where the first buffer memory cells store first data, the main memory cells store second data, which is read from the first buffer memory cells, or recovered first data, which is recovered from the second data through a correction process, includes reading data, which is stored in sample buffer memory cells included in the first buffer memory cells, as sample data when an accumulated number of read commands, which are executed on the non-volatile memory device, reaches a reference value. The method includes counting the number of errors included in the sample data based an error correction code, and determining whether the main memory cells store the second data or the recovered first data based on the number of the errors relative to the first threshold value..
