Universality in solar flare, magnetic storm and earthquake dynamics using Tsallis statistical mechanics View all abstracts by submitter

Anastasios Anastasiadis   Submitted: 2010-09-27 05:17

The universal character of the dynamics of various extreme phenomena is an outstanding scientific challenge. We show that X-ray flux and Dst time series during powerful solar flares and intense magnetic storms, respectively, obey a nonextensive energy distribution function for earthquake dynamics with similar values for the Tsallis entropic index q. Thus, evidence for uni- versality in solar flares, magnetic storms and earthquakes arise naturally in the framework of Tsallis statistical mechanics. The observed similarity sug- gests a common approach to the interpretation of these diverse phenomena in terms of driving physical mechanisms that have the same character. Keywords: universality, solar flare, magnetic storm, earthquake dynamics, Tsallis statistics
