On the statistics of the linked stress release model

David S. Harte, & Mark Bebbington

Published 2001, SCEC Contribution #6152

The paper reviews the formulation of the linked stress release model for large scale seismicity together with aspects of its application. Using data from Taiwan for illustrative purposes, models can be selected and verified using tools that include Akaike's information criterion (AIC), numerical analysis, residual point processes and Monte Carlo simulation.
