Paper Abstract

We discuss issues involved in estimating the dimension of a fractal point process. We first define the term fractal point process and provide some examples of experimental phenomena for which they serve as suitable models. We then develop mathematical formulations of fractal point processes, and present two methods for dimension estimation and an analysis of their performance. Finally, we compare this analysis with results from both simulated and natural examples of fractal point processes.
