The district of southern California is divided into small cubic cells. Each cell is regarded as a vertex of a random graph, when earthquakes with any values of magnitude occur therein. Successive earthquakes define an edge and a loop. Then, the seismic data are analyzed from the viewpoint of an evolving random network. It is found that the distribution of… (More)
Discoveries of the scale-free and small-world features are reported on a network constructed from the seismic data. It is shown that the connectivity distribution decays as a power law, and the value of the degrees of separation, i.e., the characteristic path length or the diameter, between two earthquakes (as the vertices) chosen at random takes a small… (More)
— The Internet is a complex system, whose temporal behavior is highly nonstationary and exhibits sudden drastic changes regarded as main shocks or catastrophes. Here, analyzing a set of time series data of round-trip time measured in echo experiment with the Ping Command, the property of " aftershocks " (i.e., catastrophes of smaller scales) after a main… (More)
The cumulative probability distribution of sparseness time interval in the Internet is studied by the method of data analysis. Round-trip time between a local host and a destination host through ten odd routers is measured using the Ping Command, i.e., doing echo experiment. It is found that the data are well described by the q-exponential distributions,… (More)
We examined the heart rate (HR) of subjects with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) in order to estimate exercise intensity while walking. The subjects were 17 subjects with CP (14.0 +/- 3.7 years of age) containing 7 subjects rated as level 1, 4 subjects rated as level 2, and 6 subjects rated as level 3 by the Gross Motor Function Classification System, and 7… (More)
Discovery of a new law for the three-dimensional spatial distance between the foci of successive earthquakes is reported. Analyzing the seismic data taken between 1984 and 2001 in southern Californian, it is found that the cumulative distribution of the distances follows the modified Zipf-Mandelbrot law, showing complexity of geometry of the events.
It has been reported that accuracy in the measured point of force application depends on the position and magnitude of load. The aim of this study is to investigate the error in measuring the body center of pressure in a standing posture with a force plate and to improve the accuracy by proposing a correction algorithm. The measurement of the point of force… (More)
