It has long been stated that there are profound analogies between fracture experiments and earthquakes; however, few works attempt a complete characterization of the parallels between these so… (More)

Abstract. The limits of a recently proposed universal scaling law for the probability distributions of earthquake recurrence times are explored. The scaling properties allow to improve the statistics… (More)

Branching processes pervade many models in statistical physics. We investigate the survival probability of a Galton-Watson branching process after a finite number of generations. We derive… (More)

It is traditionally assumed that Zipf's law implies the power-law growth of the number of different elements with the total number of elements in a system-the so-called Heaps' law. We show that a… (More)

The distribution of seismic moment is of capital interest to evaluate earthquake hazard, in particular regarding the most extreme events. We make use of likelihood-ratio tests to compare the simple… (More)

Data-driven prediction of thresholded time series of rainfall and self-organized criticality models.

We study the occurrence of events, subject to threshold, in a representative self-organized criticality (SOC) sandpile model and in high-resolution rainfall data. The predictability in both systems… (More)

Despite being a paradigm of quantitative linguistics, Zipf's law for words suffers from three main problems: its formulation is ambiguous, its validity has not been tested rigorously from a… (More)

Timbre is a key perceptual feature that allows discrimination between different sounds. Timbral sensations are highly dependent on the temporal evolution of the power spectrum of an audio signal. In… (More)

The theory of finite-size scaling explains how the singular behavior of thermodynamic quantities in the critical point of a phase transition emerges when the size of the system becomes infinite.… (More)

One of the key clues to consider rainfall as a self-organized critical phenomenon is the existence of power-law distributions for rain-event sizes. We have studied the problem of universality in the… (More)
