About Ray Tomes

Ray's career was in computer software development including system software design, economic modeling, investments. He spent 15 years full time on cycles research and has spoken on cycles and related topics at conferences and seminars around the world. He retired at age 42 to study cycles full time and work out “The Formula for the Universe” and as a result developed the Harmonics Theory as an explanation for observed patterns of cycles and structure of the Universe. His current project is the development of CATS (Cycles Analysis & Time Series) software, and collecting and organizing large quantities of time series data and analyzing this data to test and confirm Dewey's findings in an organized way. Interested in all aspects of cycles especially climate change and causes.

3.029 and 3.606 minute cycles in Solar Wind Speed

The ACE satellite measures the solar wind speed (among other things) of particles traveling from the Sun towards the Earth. Located at the L1 libration point it is always around 1.5 million km in the direction of the Sun and … Continue reading

Kotov’s Method of Commensurability

Valery Kotov and colleagues  have made much study of 160 minute oscillations in a wide variety of astronomical phenomena, but especially the Sun. In some cases he uses a commensurability measure to determine the best fit values for oscillations. The … Continue reading

Sunspot Number reconstruction by Leif Svalgaard and proxy cycles of 104 and 208 years

In an article on WUWT, “Solar Activity – Past, Present, Future“, Leif Svalgaard describes the problems of historical sunspot records because of changes in instrumentation and observers. He produces a new series which attempts to correct for the various problems. He … Continue reading
