    Breakage models and particle analyses have been widely used as tools for describing and interpreting various deposits and providing parameters for assessing the particle-size distribution of the deposits. Debris flows can be seen as a two-phase rheological fluid with a clay-fluid composition,...

    The properties of the similarity transformation in percolation theory in the complex plane of the percolation probability are studied. It is shown that the percolation problem on a two-dimensional square lattice reduces to the Mandelbrot transformation, leading to a fractal behavior of the...

    Optical spectra of vibrational-rotational absorption bands of atmospheric water vapor are interpreted in terms of fractal analysis. The main calculation parameter is the lacunarity of the initial spectrum. The variation in the lacunarity makes it possible to estimate the degree of translational...

    : We study the cluster size distributions generated by the Wolff algorithm in the framework of the Ising model on Sierpinski fractals with Hausdorff dimension Df between 1 and 2. We show that these distributions exhibit a scaling property involving the magnetic exponent yh associated with one of...

    Within the framework of the combination of the classical elasticity theory with the concepts of the scale invariance of the polymer structure, the dependence of the Poisson coefficient on the dimension of the fractal cluster has been found. It has been shown that the Poisson coefficient of...

    We introduce a growth process which samples sections of uniform infinite causal triangulations by elementary moves in which a single triangle is added. A relation to a random walk on the integer half line is shown. This relation is used to estimate the geodesic distance of a given triangle to...

    We study the slippage on hierarchical fractal superhydrophobic surfaces and find an unexpected rich behavior for hydrodynamic friction on these surfaces. We develop a scaling law approach for the effective slip length, which is validated by numerical resolution of the hydrodynamic equations. Our...

    Natural river networks exhibit regular scaling laws in their topological organization. Here, we investigate whether these scaling laws are unique characteristics of river networks or can be applicable to general binary tree networks. We generate numerous binary trees, ranging from purely ordered...
