Model for Studying Branching Processes, Multiplicity Distributions, and NonPoissonian Fluctuations in HeavyIon Collisions
Abstract
A change is made in a statistical framework by introducing a set of variables called ancestral or stochastic. This leads to an underlying dynamics based on branching laws, lines of descent in an hierarchical topology, period doublings, cascades, and clans. Above a certain branching probability, a percolative feature suddenly appears. Power laws emerge and cascade points arise and end at golden mean \(51\)/2.
