The causes and possible relations between the abundance of fractal structures and 1/f signals found in nature have puzzled scientists for years. Based on observations of computer simulations of the cellular automata sandpile model, the term, self-organized criticality (SOC) was invented by theoretical physicists Bak and coworkers (1987) and was used to explain a universal dynamic organizing process governing various fractal growths in space and time. SOC describes that systems organize… CONTINUE READING
