Mathematical model developed 100 years ago used to improve weather and climate models

05 September 2016

“The Russian mathematician Andrei Markov (1856–1922) could never have suspected that his Markov chains would be used for weather and climate models more than a century later,” says Jesse Dorrestijn, who saw an opportunity to improve the models that describe the cloud formation process, using a scientific work from long ago. Dorrestijn did his PhD research at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI),...Continue
