The lacunarity of a set is defined from the fluctuations of the mass distribution function, which is found using an algorithm the authors call the gliding-box method, and this definition is applied to characterize the geometry of random and deterministic fractal sets.

Fractal dimension computation from equal mass partitions.

Two mass-oriented methods for computing generalized dimensions of multifractal sets are revisited and their strengths and limitations are discussed.

Multifractal portrayal of the Swiss population

Fractal geometry is a fundamental approach for describing the complex irregularities of the spatial structure of point patterns. The present research characterizes the spatial structure of the Swiss

A precise characterization of three-dimensional percolating backbones

The backbones of three-dimensional critical percolation clusters are extracted and the fractal dimension is accurately calculated using various mass-scaling and box-counting techniques to be

Generalized Dimensions and Multifractals

In the preceding two chapters, we studied the information dimension dI of a probability distribution and of a network. However, in general a single fractal dimension does not suffice to quantify the

Thermodynamic and scaling behaviour in finite diffusion-limited aggregation

Renyi's entropies for diffusion-limited aggregates are studied as a function of the number N of particles contained in the aggregates. It is found that Renyi's values increase with log N in a linear

Estimating the Fractal Dimensions of Vascular Networks and Other Branching Structures: Some Words of Caution

Branching patterns are ubiquitous in nature, consequently over the years many researchers have tried to characterize the complexity of their structures. Due to their hierarchical nature and


Fractal dimension estimates obtained from the cumulative mass method are found to be useful for distinguishing two functionally different neuronal types which are visually similar.



Geometrical multifractality of growing structures

The authors study the mass distribution of fractal objects growing by subsequent addition of units to the structure. It is demonstrated that in the limit of very large sizes such structures generally

Erratum: Fractal measures and their singularities: The characterization of strange sets

A description of normalized distributions (measures) lying upon possibly fractal sets; for example those arising in dynamical systems theory, focusing upon the scaling properties of such measures, which are characterized by two indices: \ensuremath{\alpha}, which determines the strength of their singularities; and f, which describes how densely they are distributed.

Intermittent turbulence in self-similar cascades: divergence of high moments and dimension of the carrier

Kolmogorov's ‘third hypothesis’ asserts that in intermittent turbulence the average ε of the dissipation ε, taken over any domain D, is ruled by the lognormal probability distribution. This

Multifractal phenomena in physics and chemistry

The neologism 'multifractal phenomena' describes the concept that different regions of an object have different fractal properties. Multifractal scaling provides a quantitative description of a broad

Scaling structure of the growth-probability distribution in diffusion-limited aggregation processes.

The results suggest that these growth processes cannot be described by a simple scaling theory with a few scaling exponents and are in clear contrast to the Botet-Jullien model.
