Mass-consistent models for wind fields over complex terrain: The state of the art☆
Abstract Among the diagnostic models for wind field simulation, mass-consistent models play an important role, thanks to the simplicity of the physics involved and their capacity to accept several… Expand
Proposal of a numerical procedure to select Reference Years
Abstract A procedure is presented which can be used to create, from many years of available past weather data, a Reference Year consisting in 8760 hourly values of a few chosen meteorological… Expand
Solar irradiance estimation from geostationary satellite data: I. Statistical models☆
Abstract The use of satellite data to estimate solar irradiance at ground level represents a valid alternative to ground measurements of solar radiation. The best known methods of estimating the… Expand
Clues to discretization on the cosmic scale
Abstract Starting from discretization rules analogous to those of Bohr and Sommerfeld, values for a few mechanical quantities associated to celestial periodic motions are obtained. A gravitational… Expand

An alternate view for the emergence of chaos in Lorenz-like systems is presented in this paper. For such purpose, the Lorenz problem is reformulated in a classical mechanical form and it turns out to… Expand
Discretization on the cosmic scale inspired from the Old Quantum Mechanics
The Old Quantum Mechanics actions discretization rules for periodic motions on the atomic scale (Bohr-Sommerfeld) have been suitably modified in order to account the gravitational field instead of… Expand
DIFFUSION COEFFICIENT FOR A BROWNIAN PARTICLE IN A PERIODIC FIELD OF FORCE
The diffusion tensor for a Brownian particle in a periodic field of force is studied in the strong damping limit, in which the Smoluchowski equation is valid.
Verisimilitude and Belief Change for Conjunctive Theories
Theory change is a central concern in contemporary epistemology and philosophy of science. In this paper, we investigate the relationships between two ongoing research programs providing formal… Expand
Towards a Grammar of Bayesian Confirmation
The foundations of a detailed grammar of Bayesian confirmation are presented as a theoretical tool for the formal analysis of reasoning in epistemology and philosophy of science. After a discussion… Expand
