    The main objective of this article is to estimate the seismological source parameters of Silakhor earthquake which happened on March 31, 2006, in the southern part of Iran. The Empirical Green's Function approach was used for simulating the main shock and the well known Genetic Algorithm was utilized for modifying the seismological source parameters. The Kostrov slip function was adopted in the model due to its ability in more accurately modeling the rupture process. The selected station was sufficiently far away from the causative source so that the near source problems would not effect on the simulated time series. The GA process compares the elastic response spectra with 5% damping ratio,...
