Paper Abstract

The fractal properties of the clusters corresponding to the regions whose contour is a fractional brownian path have been extensively investigated. The clusters form a stationary sequence, which has been characterized by analyzing the length, the lifetime and the area of the single cluster. The rich fractal structure of the patterns has allowed to determine the time dependent Hurst exponent with great accuracy. We have also demonstrated that the cluster area, length and lifetime exhibit the characteristic scaling behavior of systems evolving through self-organized critical states.
