This paper explores log-periodicity in a forest-fire cellular-automata model. At each time step of this model a tree is dropped on a randomly chosen site; if the site is unoccupied, the tree is planted. Then, for a given sparking frequency, matches are dropped on a randomly chosen site; if the site is occupied by a tree, the tree ignites and an “instantaneous” model fire consumes that tree and all adjacent trees. The resultant frequency-area distribution for the small and medium model fires is… CONTINUE READING
