A mathematical theory of climate sensitivity or, How to deal with both anthropogenic forcing and natural variability?
Recent estimates of climate evolution over the coming century still differ by several degrees. This uncertainty motivates the work presented here. There are two basic approaches to apprehend the
Driving a conceptual model climate by different processes: snapshot attractors and extreme events.
TLDR
The maximal effects of deterministic drivings are found to be more pronounced, both in magnitude and variability of the extremes, than white noise, and the latter has a stronger effect than red noise.
The Theory of Parallel Climate Realizations
Based on the theory of “snapshot/pullback attractors”, we show that important features of the climate change that we are observing can be understood by imagining many replicas of Earth that are not
The onset of chaos in nonautonomous dissipative dynamical systems: a low-order ocean-model case study
Abstract. A four-dimensional nonlinear spectral ocean model is used to study the transition to chaos induced by periodic forcing in systems that are nonchaotic in the autonomous limit. The analysis
The onset of chaos in nonautonomous dissipative dynamical systems : a low-order ocean-model case study
A four-dimensional nonlinear spectral ocean model is used to study the transition to chaos induced by periodic forcing in systems that are nonchaotic in the autonomous limit. The analysis relies on
Stochastically driven transitions between climate attractors
The classical non-linear climatic model previously developed by Saltzman with co-authors and Nicolis is analysed in both the deterministic and stochastic cases in a wider domain of system parameters.
Noise-driven topological changes in chaotic dynamics.
TLDR
The present work compares the topological structure of the deterministic Lorenz (1963) attractor with its stochastically perturbed version and suggests that LORA's evolution includes sharp transitions that appear as topological tipping points.
The theory of parallel climate realizations: A new framework of ensemble methods in a changing climate – an overview
Based on the theory of “snapshot/pullback attractors”, we show that important features of the climate change we are observing can be understood by imagining many replicas of the Earth that are not

Singular-hyperbolic attractors are chaotic
We prove that a singular-hyperbolic attractor of a 3-dimensional flow is chaotic, in two different strong senses. First, the flow is expansive: if two points remain close at all times, possibly with
Stochastic climate models Part I. Theory
A stochastic model of climate variability is considered in which slow changes of climate are explained as the integral response to continuous random excitation by short period “weather” disturbances.
Quantifying predictability in a model with statistical features of the atmosphere
TLDR
A thorough analysis of the nature of predictability in the idealized system is developed by using a theoretical framework developed by R.K. Dickinson and finds that in most cases the absolute difference in the first moments of these two distributions is the main determinant of predictive utility variations.
