The upper-air sounding network for Dynamics of the Madden–Julian Oscillation (DYNAMO) has provided an unprecedented set of observations for studying the MJO over the Indian Ocean, where coupling of this oscillation with deep convection first occurs. With 72 rawinsonde sites and dropsonde data from 13 aircraft missions, the sounding network covers the(More)
A simple parametric model is proposed for data from a point-process version of a reaction time experiment. It is used to statistically check for the presence and nature of nonlinear inhibition in the eye-brain-hand system, as well as to study the nature of the reaction time delay distribution. The model tells us that, in principle, the second-order(More)
Heyman gives an interesting factorization of I − P , where P is the transition probability matrix for an ergodic Markov Chain. We show that this factoriza-tion is valid if and only if the Markov chain is recurrent. Moreover, we provide a decomposition result which includes all ergodic, null recurrent as well as the transient Markov chains as special cases.(More)
