ABSTRACT Accurate prediction of the intensity and variability of strong ground motions
for future large earthquakes depends on our ability to simulate realistic earthquake source
models. While there has been considerable progress in characterizing the complexity of
earthquake ruptures, recent devastating earthquakes have exhibited rather unexpected
