quasi-periodic love

Definitions

from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • Noting a function such that, when the variable is increased by a certain fixed amount, it has its value multiplied by a fixed function: thus, l is quasi-periodic, because lx + 1 = l. l.

  • The fact that an N-dimensional model is the most economic way to describe some aspect of reality (such as quasi-periodic crystals) doesn't imply that space is N-dimensional.

    A Third Choice (ID Hypothesis)

  • XMM-Newton detected what the astronomers call "quasi-periodic oscillations," a nearly regular "flickering" caused by the pile-up of hot gas deep within the accretion disk that forms around a massive object.

  • Furthermore, as you noted in the original comment, very long-tailed stochastic processes have been identified in solar behavior, while other quasi-periodic astronomical phenomena eg changes in earth orbital parameters, fluctuations in cosmic ray influx etc that have been identified as possible climate drivers would also lead to long period autocorrelations in climate variables.

  • Much of that work has been about trying to better understand the quasi-periodic climate pattern known as El Niño (or, more officially, the El Niño-Southern Oscillation), which occurs over the tropical Pacific Ocean every three to seven years.
