I've come across this paper before, and wonder if any of the maths savvy members have any opinon on it. In particular, is this a valid use of the Virial theorem, and are the proofs sound?

No, this is a pretty pathetic presentation & application of the virial theorem. Pacheco & Sañudo have published a much better one; and I even did one of my own, to cover the same ground. Toth dreamed this up trying to understand and justify Miscolczi's "disproof of the greenhouse effect". | |

nealjking, thanks. Do you have a link (or full citation) for Pacheco and Sanudo, or for your own paper? | |

I think this might be what Neal was referring to, the Pacheco and Sanudo paper. | |

P & S: I can send you a copy, otherwise it's $$ (see Alex's link above). Misckolczi was kind enough to send it to me. Mine: Likewise, it's easier to send you a copy directly, as it's not published. |
