The Hum: Log-normal Distribution and Planetary–solar Resonance : V...

By: R. Tattersall

Description: University of Leeds, Leeds, UK. Observations of solar and planetary orbits, rotations, and diameters show that these attributes are related by simple ratios. The forces of gravity and magnetism and the principles of energy conservation, entropy, power laws, and the log-normal distribution which are evident are discussed in relation to planetary distribution with respect to time in the solar system. This discussion is informed by consideration of the per...
