We analyze the seismic moment-frequency relation in various depth ranges and for different seismic regions, using Flinn-Engdahlâ€™s regionalization of global seismicity. Three earthquake lists ofâ€¦ (More)

We determine the parameter values for the seismic moment-frequency relation using Flinn-Engdahl's regionalization of global seismicity and the Harvard centroid-moment tensor data. The earthquake sizeâ€¦ (More)

SUMMAR Y We present long-term and short-term forecasts for magnitude 5.8 and larger earthquakes. We discuss a method for optimizing both procedures and testing their forecasting effectiveness usingâ€¦ (More)

A new plate model is used to analyze the mean seismicities of seven types of plate boundary (CRB, continental rift boundary; CTF, continental transform fault; CCB, continental convergent boundary;â€¦ (More)

S U M M A R Y We compare the tectonic rate with earthquake data using several theoretical distributions to approximate the seismic momentâ€“frequency relation. We derive formulae to estimate parametersâ€¦ (More)

An accumulation of seismic moment data gathered over the previous decade justifies a new attempt at a comprehensive statistical analysis of these data: herein, more rigourous statistical techniquesâ€¦ (More)

I review the short-term properties of earthquake catalogs, in particular the time and size distributions and the completeness of the early part of aftershock sequences for strong, shallowâ€¦ (More)

Herein I review experimental evidence for earthquake scale-invariance. Earthquake occurrence exhibits scaling properties: the temporal correlations of earthquakes are power law and the distributionâ€¦ (More)

Heavy tailed random variables (rvs) have proven to be an essential element in modeling a wide variety of natural and human-induced processes, and the sums of heavy tailed rvs represent a particularlyâ€¦ (More)
