Abstract: The seismic moment tensor is the complete mathematical representation of the movement on a fault 10 during an earthquake, comprising of the couples of forces that produced it, the description of the fault 11 geometry, and its size by means of the scalar seismic moment M0. 12 The computation of seismic moment tensor has become a widely diffused activity because of the 13 relevance of this kind of data in seismotectonic and geodynamic studies and, in more recent times, 14 because it allows obtaining rapid information about a seismic event immediately after its occurrence. This 15 progress has been possible with the advent of modern standardized instruments since the early 1960s, 16 above all of the very broadband seismographic stations that started to record in the late 1970s. Further- 17 more, time after time, the easier availability of digital data impressed a strong incentive to improve the 18 procedures of source parameter computation.
