Re: Spotless Sun by 4realScience on Sun Oct 04, 2009 2:13 am I vote for vukcevic on this topic. I admit I have not checked his calculations -only looked at his purported results. ( Page 1 on this topic.)
It looks like he has recognized and formalized the link between sunspot activity and the major planets orbital periods. This makes complete sense to me in the because I understand the math theory, the Fourier transform, that shows the fundamental frequencies (in this case orbital periods) that combine (interfere and reinforce) to produce the overall resultant sunspot signal. Look at his post. His blue line( the predicted signal ( from orbital periods) follows the main contour of the sunspot signal. If his calcs are right, this is conclusive evidence that major planets are interacting in some way with the sun.
Who else has a predictive math model of sunspots?
For those who think he is mainly a dreaded curve-fitter, relax. This is not exactly curve fitting (main actors are fixed). Its Fourier analysis. In this regime we define a set of primary actors ( that supply fundamental frequencies at known phases (orbital periods and current locations of their associated planets) ) and run interference equations until we get a fit. What we vary, in the trials, is only the AMPLITUDE of the fundamental signals (planetary periods and locations remain fixed).
And secondly, we at EU already know the sun, planets, and moons are directly connected by the Birkeland grid. Here is a part of the physical means these distant objects affect each other (gravity need not apply)! It looks like the sun gets spots when the planets align in a certain way. Looks like the planets are starving the sun at that point.
PS: I'm and old geek who has worked since 1969 with Fourier related systems, mostly in audio and music.
Re: Spotless Sun by seasmith on Sun Oct 04, 2009 2:31 am ~ I also think highly of Vukcevics' work.
Given the recent observed correlation between low sunspot activity and increased 'cosmic ray' intensities, what are the longer-term predictive consequences ?
