Mathematical methods of detection of biological and heliogeophysical rhythms in the light of developments in modern heliobiology: A platform for discussion

Software-Hardware Systems

Conclusion

Analysis of the currently available mathematical methods for the detection of biological and heliogeophysical rhythms, and also methods for comparison of independent oscillatory processes shows that the Russian and the International Societies of Chronobiologists, despite the abundance of journals and monographs that they publish, have so far been unable to fully exploit and develop the original contribution that A. L. Chizhevskii made to world science 50 years ago.

The work of the present author and her colleagues has been driven entirely by their own enthusiasm, and carried out contrary to the plans of official Councils on Chronobiology, in an atmosphere of an information blockade. Their studies have not been discussed in any survey article or textbook on chronobiology, not listed in the relevant sections of the VINITI Journals of Abstracts or in the subject catalogs of scientific libraries, not accepted for presentation at representative sessions and conferences on biorhythmology, not cited in dissertations devoted to the development of mathematical methods of detection of biorhythms. We can thus safely say that the fate of the science of heliobiology during the last 25 years remains as complex as it was in Chizhevskii's life time.
