Abstract

In this work a new non-linear theoretical cumulative
frequency-magnitude relation is proposed, that better fits the experimental
data in the high magnitude range than the classical Gutenberg-Richter's
relation does. The parameters of the relation are fi, which is connected
with the parameter b of Gutenberg-Richter's relation, and the value of
maximum possible regional magnitude Mp.
The relation is very close to the Gutenberg-Richter's one when the
value of Mp is very high.
Finally some application examples are given.
