Landslide inventories show that the statistical distribution of the area of recorded events is well described by a power law over a range of decades. To understand these distributions, we consider a cellular automaton to model a time and position dependent factor of safety. The model is able to reproduce the complex structure of landslide distribution , as(More)
Many natural phenomena display "self-organized criticality" (SOC), (Bak et al., 1987). This refers to spatially extended systems for which patterns of activity characterized by different lengthscales can occur with a probability density that follows a power law with pattern size. Differently from power laws at phase transitions, systems displaying SOC do(More)
Many intracellular Ca(2+) signals involve Ca(2+) release from the endoplasmic reticulum through inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP3Rs). The open probability of IP3Rs depends on cytosolic Ca(2+) so that these signals involve Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+)-release (CICR). IP3Rs are organized in clusters. The signals they mediate are observed using(More)
Ca²⁺ release into the cytosol through inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptors (IP₃Rs) plays a relevant role in numerous physiological processes. IP₃R-mediated Ca²⁺ signals involve Ca²⁺-induced Ca²⁺-release (CICR) whereby Ca²⁺ release through one open IP₃R induces the opening of other channels. IP₃Rs are apparently organized in clusters. The signals can(More)
