### Resources on Master Equations

Presently I am reading about "Introduction to dynamical process theory and simulation" which uses the notion of Master Equations to solve Markov process. I am very new to this. Can someone provide me ...

### What are some of the best books on complex systems?

I'm rather interested in getting my feet wet at the interface of complex systems and emergence. Can anybody give me references to some good books on these topics? I'm looking for very introductory ...

### Deviation from power law distribution of earthquakes

One of the most accepted frameworks for the relationship between the magnitude and frequency of an earthquake is that of the critical phenomena. In this framework, the magnitude of events must be ...

### Lacking of scale and distribution moments

Given a physical random variable x, $E(x)$ and $E((x-<x>)^2)$ defines mean and variance. From a statistical point of view variance represents the statistic error (isn't it?). If variance is not ...

### Rainfalls and critical phenomena

By definition, rainfalls are transitions from vapor state to liquid state of water. I can say that "by definition" rainfalls must viewed as critical phenomenon?

### The meaning of scale invariance in power law distribution

A function $f(ax)$ that satisfies $$f(ax)=a^\Delta f(x)\,\,\, (\Delta \in R)$$ is said to be scale invariant. The most general function $f(x)$ that satisfies the previous condition is of the form ...

### Scale invariance in sandpile model and forest fire model

I asked a similar question but the wrong way here. Because my intention was to ask about non thermodynamic system, i will be more specific: What is the relation between critical behaviour and the ...
