Characterizing dynamics with covariant Lyapunov vectors.
A general method to determine covariant Lyapunov vectors in both discrete- and continuous-time dynamical systems is introduced. This allows us to address fundamental questions such as the degree ofExpand

Performance evaluation of various hourly slope irradiation models using Mediterranean experimental data of Ajaccio
Hourly global irradiations on tilted planes are required in various engineering calculations for solar systems. In many sites, at best, only global irradiations on horizontal planes are available.Expand

Stochastic study of hourly total solar radiation in Corsica using a Markov model
The aim of this paper was to study total solar radiation using a Markov chain, with a view to setting up a solar data generator. This meteorological parameter was transformed into another, called theExpand
