A fundamentally new model of aftershocks evident from the shock-wave model of the earthquake and Poincaré Recurrence Theorem [H. Poincare, Acta Mathematica 13, 1 (1890)] is proposed here. The authors (Recurrences in an isolated quantum many-body system, Science 2018) argue that the theorem should be formulated as “Complex systems return almost exactly into their initial state”. For the first time, this recurrence theorem has been demonstrated with complex quantum multi-particle systems. Our shock-wave model of an earthquake proceeds from the quantum entanglement of protons in hydrogen bonds of lithosphere material. Clearly aftershocks are quantum phenomena which mechanism follows the recurrence theorem.
