This thesis presents an interpretation of the Theory of Biorhythms and develops a combined statistical model for a statistical validation of the theory. The model is then used to investigate a set of intellectual data and a set of accident data. The intellectual data is based upon 112 academic grades taken from four postgraduate school students over a 14 month period. The accident data, taken from insurance abstracts, consists of 66 accidents which occurred at a pulp plant in British Columbia, Canada.
