Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics

Complex nonequilibrium systems are often effectively described by a "statistics of a statistics", in short, a "superstatistics". We describe how to proceed from a given experimental time series to a superstatistical description. We argue that many experimental data fall into three different universality classes: Chi2 superstatistics (Tsallis statistics), Chi2 inverse superstatistics, and log-normal superstatistics. We discuss how to extract the two relevant well separated superstatistical time… CONTINUE READING
