Correction to: “Constraining climate forecasts: The role of prior assumptions”
(American Geophysical Union (AGU) / Wiley, 20140502)N/A 
A counterexample to "positive realness preserving model reduction with ℋ∞ norm error bounds"
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011)We provide a counterexample to the H∞ error bound for the difference of a positive real transfer function and its positive real balanced truncation stated in “Positive realness preserving model reduction with H∞ norm error ... 
Countertraveling waves in rotating RayleighBénard convection.
(American Physical Society, 2008)Linear and nonlinear countertraveling waves in a fluidfilled annular cylinder with realistic noslip boundary conditions uniformly heated from below and rotating about a vertical axis are investigated. When the gap of ... 
Criteria for robustness of heteroclinic cycles in neural microcircuits.
(BioMed Central / SpringerOpen, 2011)We introduce a test for robustness of heteroclinic cycles that appear in neural microcircuits modeled as coupled dynamical cells. Robust heteroclinic cycles (RHCs) can appear as robust attractors in LotkaVolterratype ... 
Critical fronts in initiation of excitation waves
(American Physical Society, 2007)We consider the problem of initiation of propagating waves in a onedimensional excitable fiber. In the FitzHughNagumo theory, the key role is played by "critical nucleus" and "critical pulse" solutions whose (center) ... 
Critical layer and radiative instabilities in shallowwater shear flows
(Cambridge University Press, 20140623)In this study a linear stability analysis of shallowwater flows is undertaken for a representative Froude number $\def \xmlpi #1{}\def \mathsfbi #1{\boldsymbol {\mathsf {#1}}}\let \le =\leqslant \let \leq =\leqslant \let ... 
A critical role for network structure in seizure onset: a computational modeling approach
(Frontiers Media, 2014)Recent clinical work has implicated network structure as critically important in the initiation of seizures in people with idiopathic generalized epilepsies. In line with this idea, functional networks derived from the ... 
Cycling chaos: its creation, persistence and loss of stability in a model of nonlinear magnetoconvection
(Elsevier, 1998)We examine a model system where attractors may consist of a heteroclinic cycle between chaotic sets; this `cycling chaos' manifests itself as trajectories that spend increasingly long periods lingering near chaotic invariant ... 
Cycling chaotic attractors in two models for dynamics with invariant subspaces
(American Institute of Physics, 2004)Nonergodic attractors can robustly appear in symmetric systems as structurally stable cycles between saddletype invariant sets. These saddles may be chaotic giving rise to "cycling chaos." The robustness of such attractors ... 
Damped large amplitude transverse oscillations in an EUV solar prominence, triggered by largescale transient coronal waves
(EDP Sciences, 2011)Aims. We investigate two successive trains of large amplitude transverse oscillations in an arched EUV prominence, observed with SoHO/EIT on the northeast solar limb on 30 July 2005. The oscillatory trains are triggered ... 
Decelerating defects and nonergodic critical behaviour in a unidirectionally coupled map lattice
(Elsevier, 2003)We examine a coupled map lattice (CML) consisting of an infinite chain of logistic maps coupled in one direction by inhibitory coupling. We find that for sufficiently strong coupling strength there are dynamical states ... 
Decentralised static output feedback stabilisation and synchronisation of networks
(Elsevier, 200912)In this paper global stabilisation of a complex network is attained by applying local decentralised output feedback control to a minimum number of nodes of the network. The stabilisation of the network is treated as a rank ... 
A decentralized parallelizationintime approach with parareal
(Arxiv.org, 20150616)With steadily increasing parallelism for highperformance architectures, simulations requiring a good strong scalability are prone to be limited in scalability with standard spatialdecomposition strategies at a certain ... 
Declining summer snowfall in the Arctic: Causes, impacts and feedbacks
(Springer Verlag, 2012)Recent changes in the Arctic hydrological cycle are explored using in situ observations and an improved atmospheric reanalysis data set, ERAInterim. We document a pronounced decline in summer snowfall over the Arctic Ocean ... 
Delayed static output feedback control of a network of double integrator agents
(Elsevier, 201311)This paper considers a network of vehicles moving in a two dimensional plane. The overall network, described by a collection of double integrator dynamics, is controlled by a novel distributed static output feedback ... 
Demographic buffering and compensatory recruitment promotes the persistence of disease in a wildlife population.
(Wiley, 20160211)Demographic buffering allows populations to persist by compensating for fluctuations in vital rates, including diseaseinduced mortality. Using longterm data on a badger (Meles meles Linnaeus, 1758) population naturally ... 
Dengue epidemic early warning system for Brazil
(UNISDR Scientific and Technical Advisory Group, 2015)The problem Brazil has reported more cases of dengue fever than anywhere else in the world this century1. Many cities have tropical and subtropical climate conditions that allow the dengue mosquito to thrive during warmer, ... 
Dengue outlook for the World Cup in Brazil: an early warning model framework driven by realtime seasonal climate forecasts.
(Elsevier: Lancet, 20140516)BACKGROUND: With more than a million spectators expected to travel among 12 different cities in Brazil during the football World Cup, June 12July 13, 2014, the risk of the mosquitotransmitted disease dengue fever is a ... 
Dependency of global mean precipitation on surface temperature
(American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2008)We investigate the causes of temperature dependent changes in global precipitation in contemporary General Circulation Models (GCMs) subjected to a doubling of atmospheric CO2 concentration. By analyzing the energy budget ... 
Design of a Virtual Player for Joint Improvisation with Humans in the Mirror Game
(Public Library of Science, 20160428)Joint improvisation is often observed among humans performing joint action tasks. Exploring the underlying cognitive and neural mechanisms behind the emergence of joint improvisation is an open research challenge. This ...
