Short summary
We devise a model of a fault system and study the conditions under which it can generate a sequence of seismic events. We also point out the conditions determining the order of the events in a sequence. A significant conclusion of our analysis is that the features of seismic sequences originated by a given fault system (order of events, duration of the sequence, duration of interseismic intervals) typically change from one sequence to another, due to the complexity of fault interaction.
