History of Economic Cycles (~1800-2000)

submitted by: RayTomes
Cycles Research is not a commonly studied subject and yet there are definite trends in history in the finding of information about cycles. Starting with Sir William Herschel there have been reports of various length cycles in many economic variables including commodity yields and prices, stock markets, business conditions, building activity, growth, price fluctuations and industrial production. The common cycles periods found over extended time periods are mentioned and the people that they...

Harmonic Cloud Patterns on Jupiter

submitted by: RayTomes

Regularly spaced clouds appear in Jupiter's belts, sometimes white spots and sometimes swirling waves. A polar projection of Jupiter, made by NASA from the 2000 flyby, allows accurate testing of the hypothesis that these waves form as predicted by the Harmonics Theory. It is found that expected strong harmonics 12, 24 and 72 are present.
