We present the SLIM open-source software framework for computational geophysics, and more generally, inverse problems based on the wave-equation (e.g., medical ultrasound). We developed a software environment aimed at scalable research and development by designing multiple layers of abstractions. This environment allows the researchers to easily formulate their problem in an abstract fashion, while still being able to exploit the latest developments in high-performance computing. We illustrate and demonstrate the benefits of our software design on many geophysical applications, including seismic inversion and physics-informed machine learning for geophysics(e.g., loop unrolled imaging, uncertainty quantification), all while facilitating the integration of external software.
