### Any fractal physical model that generates time series which demonstrate heavy-tailed (non-Gaussian) behavior in some form?

I know that fractal structures have power-laws in various forms "hidden" in them. I am looking for the most simple fractal model that I can find that generates time series with, say, Pareto-...

### Building a Faraday cage for mobile networks that is transparent for optical wavelenghts

A friend of mine is working on an architectonic project, where she designs a Faraday cage type of open space built in parks or other public places. The initial thought is to build it from some sort of ...

### What are the first couple terms of the Taylor series for the evolution of this network of capacitors and resistors?

note: This is a computational problem, and I only need approximate accuracy, so the overall goal is, for a given accuracy and $\Delta t$ to compute the state of the system at $t+\Delta t$ to within ...

### Does the spin glass corresponding to a restricted Boltzmann machine have a characteristic timescale?

From what I gather, a Boltzmann machine can be identified with a spin glass. Though I don't know the details yet (and would welcome any references within the last 5 years--not, e.g. MacKay, etc.), I ...

### Impedance matrix for two coupled lines

I am trying to calculate the impedance matrix (z-parameters) of two coupled transmissions lines which both have different widths. From what I understand is that you can calculate the y-parameters of ...
