In order to decluster the earthquake catalog into main and secondary events, Reasenberg's (1985) algorithm is used in this study because the exclusion of dependent events from the catalog is an important part of an earthquake hazard analysis.
2011) stated that just the main earthquakes must be considered in the recurrence analysis of earthquakes and all dependent events such as foreshocks and aftershocks must be excluded from the catalog before starting any calculations.
Among the changes, the USGS has chosen to group dependent events
such as three earthquakes that occurred from 1811-1812 in the New Madrid zone as clusters instead of independent events.
The inclusion of dependent events in the seismic risk analysis has been known to result in minor increase in the hazard estimation .
An earthquake can be identified as dependent events if it is flagged by the empirical criteria as shown in Figure 3.
Studies have shown that impaired vascular contractile responses in chronic portal hypertension (CPH) are mediated via cAMP dependent events
A sugar harvest is an intricate string of dependent events
which cannot be fixed by focusing on one matter at a time.
Besides the possibility of considering dependent events, we have introduced the concept of event expressions mainly in order to cope with possible dependencies of event expressions (caused by identical basic events occurring in these expressions).
Thus, the independence probability assignment does not allow for computing the probabilities for event expressions containing dependent events.
For the problem of dependent events stemming from vague predicates, additional dependence information will hardly ever be available.
