We test the concept that seismicity prior to a large earthquake can be understood in terms of the statistical physics of a critical phase transition. In this model, the cumulative seismic strain release increases as a power law time to failure before the final event. Furthermore, the region of correlated seismicity predicted by this model is much greater than would be predicted from simple elastodynamic interactions. We present a systematic procedure to test for the accelerating seismicity… Expand
