FALSE-ALARM PROBABILITY IN RELATION TO OVERSAMPLED POWER SPECTRA, WITH APPLICATION TO SUPER-KAMIOKANDE SOLAR NEUTRINO DATA

- P. Sturrock, J. Scargle
- Physics
- 3 June 2010

The term "false-alarm probability" denotes the probability that at least one out of M independent power values in a prescribed search band of a power spectrum computed from a white-noise time series… Expand

THE KINEMATICS OF GROWING WAVES

- P. Sturrock
- Physics
- 1 December 1958

This paper is concerned with the problem of distinguishing between amplifying and evanescent waves. These have, in the past, been distinguished by considerations of energy transfer or of the initial… Expand

CORONAL X-RAY BRIGHTNESS AND PHOTOSPHERIC MAGNETIC FIELD: A STUDY IN CORRELATIONS

- R. Wolfson, R. Wolfson, C. B. Roald, P. Sturrock, M. Weber
- Physics
- 20 August 2000

We have examined correlations between coronal X-ray emission from the Yohkoh Soft X-Ray Telescope (SXT) and photospheric magnetic field measurements from the Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI) on SOHO.… Expand

Maximum energy of semi-infinite magnetic-field configurations

- P. Sturrock
- Physics
- 1991

In solar physics and many other areas of astrophysics, one is interested in the properties of magnetic-field configurations that extend out from a given surface that may be termed the "source… Expand

Combined and Comparative Analysis of Power Spectra

- P. Sturrock, J. Scargle, G. Walther, M. Wheatland
- Physics
- 2 February 2005

In solar physics, especially in exploratory stages of research, it is often necessary to compare the power spectra of two or more time series. One may, for instance, wish to estimate what the power… Expand

Asymptotic analysis of force-free magnetic fields of cylindrical symmetry

- P. Sturrock, S. Antiochos, G. Roumeliotis
- Physics
- 20 April 1995

It is known from computer calculations that if a force-free magnetic-field configuration is stressed progressively by footpoint displacements, the configuration expands and approaches the open… Expand

Coronal Heating: Energy Release Associated with Chromospheric Magnetic Reconnection

- C. B. Roald, P. Sturrock, R. Wolfson, R. Wolfson
- Physics
- 1 August 2000

We examine a one-dimensional circularly symmetric supergranulation reconnection model with typical quiet-Sun values. In this model, the assumed source rate of elements determines heating, because all… Expand
