Abstract

Applied the concept of non extensive entropy we estimate the seismic risk function The approach is based on the calculation from first principle of the probability density function (PDF) and the introduction of a phenomenological exponential expression for the damage function. As a result a the PDF lead under well defined conditions to the well know Gutemberg-Richter power law. The b-value is expressed as a function of the non-extensive thermodynamic parameter q. A discussion of risk function dependence on the parameters of seismic hazard PDF and damage function is presented.
