In the Korean traditional board game Yut-Nori, teams compete by moving their pieces on a two-dimensional game board, and the team whose all pieces complete a round trip on the board wins. In every round, teams throw four wooden sticks of the shape of half-cut cylinders and the number of sticks that show belly sides, i.e., the flat sides, determines the number of steps the team’s piece can advance on the board. It is possible to pile up one team’s pieces if their sites are identical so that…

Toppling distributions in one-dimensional Abelian sandpiles

We consider toppling distributions for the Abelian sandpile model in one dimension. We study the avalanche mass and duration distributions in the thermodynamic limit. We also investigate their

Large scale structures, symmetry, and universality in sandpiles.

A sandpile model where, at each unstable site, all grains are transferred randomly to downstream neighbors is introduced, but not Abelian, which does not appear to change the universality class for the avalanches in the self-organized critical state.
