(a) Three possible scenarios that a backtracking bundle’s path would have positioned relative to the pulse at a time t2. The end points a, b, and c corresponds to the cases (a), (b), and (c), respectively, described in the algorithm section step 3; (b) The relation of backtracking bundle path length, i.e., case (a)-part(2), and pulse’s travel distance from t2 to t1. The path length of (z1−zL)/(−μ) equals the pulse travel distance at the same time interval. The equality leads to the determination of zL. In this case zU is z2.
