Based on the results of other researchers as well as my own tests, evidence of the characteristic earthquake hypothesis can be explained either by statistical bias or statistical artifact. Since other distributions of earthquake size provide a simpler explanation for available information, the hypothesis cannot be regarded as… CONTINUE READING
