Some salient properties of the inverse power law distribution, the exponential distribution, catastrophe distributions, and the relationships among them were explored and compared. Self-organizing events may display any of these distributions. Catastrophe functions and their distributions do not display fractional (fractal) dimensions. Thus it is possible… CONTINUE READING
