2012 Integrated Assessment  
Past changes and possible future variations in the nature of extreme precipitation and flood events in Central Europe and the Alpine region are examined from a physical standpoint. An overview is given of the following key contributory physical processes: (1) the variability of the large-scale atmospheric flow and the associated changes of the North-Atlantic storm track; (2) the feedback process between climate warming and the water cycle, and in particular the potential for more frequent heavy

In this context an account is provided of the possible future forecasting and warning methodologies based upon high-resolution weather prediction and runoff models. Also consideration is given to the detectability of past (future) changes in observed (modeled) extreme events. It is shown that their rarity and natural fluctuation largely impedes a detection of systematic variations. These effects restrict trend analysis of such events to return periods of below a few months. An illustration using daily precipitation from the Swiss Alps does yield evidence for pronounced trends of intense precipitation events (return period 30 days), while trends of stronger event classes are not detectable (but nevertheless can not be excluded). The small detection probability for extreme events limits possible mitigation of future damage costs through an abatement of climate change alone, and points to the desirability of developing improved early forecasting/warning systems as an additional no-regret strategy.

Overconvergent Witt Vectors [article]

Christopher Davis, Andreas Langer, Thomas Zink
2010 arXiv   pre-print
Let A be a finitely generated algebra over a field K of characteristic p >0. We introduce a subring of the ring of Witt vectors W(A). We call it the ring of overconvergent Witt vectors. We prove that on a scheme X of finite type over K the overconvergent Witt vectors are an \'etale sheaf. In a forthcoming paper (Annales ENS) we define an overconvergent de Rham-Witt complex on a smooth scheme X over a perfect field K whose hypercohomology is the rigid cohomology of X in the sense of Berthelot.

Symmetric norms and reverse inequalities to Davis and Hansen-Pedersen characterizations of operator convexity [article]

Jean-Christophe Bourin
2005 arXiv   pre-print
Such inequalities are reverse inequalities to Davis' characterization of operator convexity via compressions. Equivalently, we show that, given any isometric column of operators {A i } m i=1 , i.e.  ...  Davis' characterization (D) of operator convexity is equivalent to the following result of Hansen-Pedersen [5] . Recall that a family {A i } m i=1 form an isometric column when A * i A i = I.  ...
