Vukcevic Formula

Equation tracking sunspot cycles envelope was published on the 7

^{th}January 2004 (more than 10 years before SC24 hit its maximum annual value).Details can be found on the CERN server, the link is

The MS Excel ready formula is on page 3, just above ‘Conclusion’

Vukcevic formula can be copied directly from the page 3, pasted into Excel spreadsheet. When the Ax variable (relevant year) is replaced by 2014 the calculated result is 78.8943 or rounded off to one decimal place

SC24max=78.9
