First passage and first hitting times of Lévy flights and Lévy walks

In many areas of science and applied mathematics, important events often get initiated when a stochastic variable crosses a threshold value. Financial assets may be sold at a particular price, or a chemical reaction initiated when two particles come close enough. Read more

Recurrence Spectra of European Temperature in Historical Climate Simulations

Climate events linked to extremes of temperature (heatwaves/cold spells) have severe impacts on human health and natural ecosystems. Over the past few decades, the frequency and intensity of heatwaves have increased in Europe. Read more

Here are links to a few recent articles by LML External Fellow Mark Buchanan. Read more

Seismological investigations of induced earthquakes near the Hutubi underground gas storage facility

Earth scientists have long known that fluid injected into the Earth’s crust can induce earthquakes. In principle, seismic activity may also be triggered through gas extraction through the mechanism of poroelastic stress perturbation, although such events have been observed less frequently. Read more
