Solar Turbulence in Earth's Global and Regional Temperature Anomalies

Description: This article presents a study of the influence of solar activity on the earth's temperature. In particular, the authors focus on the repercussion of the fluctuations of the solar irradiance on the temperature of the Northern and Southern hemispheres as well as on land and ocean regions.

Spontaneous Brain Activity as a Source of Ideal 1/f Noise

Description: In this article, the authors study the electroencephalogram (EEG) of 30 closed-eye subjects with a technique of analysis recently proposed to detect punctual events signaling rapid transitions between different metastable states.

Stromatolites: why do we care?

Description: Article discussing stromatolites. The authors apply the method of Diffusion Entropy (DE) to the study of stromatolites by means of a two-dimensional procedure that makes it possible for us to compare the DE analysis to the results of a compression method.

Trajectory versus probability density entropy

Description: In this article, the authors show that the widely accepted conviction that a connection can be established between the probability density entropy and the Kolmogorov-Sinai (KS) entropy is questionable.

Tunneling rate fluctuations induced by nonlinear resonances: A quantitative treatment based on semiclassical arguments

Description: This article discusses tunneling rate fluctuations induced by nonlinear resonances. The authors investigate the tunneling process between two symmetric stable islands of a forced pendulum Hamiltonian in the weak chaos regime.
