We present a major step forward towards accurately predicting the arrivals of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) on the terrestrial planets, including the Earth. For the first time, we are able to assess a CME prediction model using data over almost a full solar cycle of observations with the Heliophysics System Observatory. We validate modeling results on 1337 CMEs observed with the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO) heliospheric imagers (HI) with data from 8 years of observations by 5 spacecraft in situ in the solar wind, thereby gathering over 600 independent in situ CME detections.

We identify all fast-mode forward shocks, whose sheath regions resulted in a moderate (56 cases) or intense (38 cases) geomagnetic storm during 18.5 years from January 1997 to June 2015. We study their main properties, interplanetary causes and geo-effects. Read More

In a graph whose vertices are assigned integer ranks, a path is well-ranked if the endpoints have distinct ranks or some interior point has a higher rank than the endpoints. A ranking is an assignment of ranks such that all nontrivial paths are well-ranked. A $k$-ranking is a relaxation in which all nontrivial paths of length at most $k$ are well-ranked. Read More

Membrane potential in a mathematical model of a cardiac myocyte can be formulated in different ways. Assuming a spatially homogeneous myocyte that is strictly charge-conservative and electroneutral as a whole, two methods will be compared: (1) the differential formulation dV/dt=-I/C_m of membrane potential used traditionally; and (2) the capacitor formulation, where membrane potential is defined algebraically by the capacitor equation V=Q/C_m. We examine the relationship between the formulations, assumptions under which each formulation is consistent, and show that the capacitor formulation provides a transparent, physically realistic formulation of membrane potential, whereas use of the differential formulation may introduce unintended and undesirable behavior, such as monotonic drift of concentrations.
