In the circumstances of hadron physics, it allows a new understanding on the intermittency effect [23-28] observed in high energy data, determines the related fractal dimension, and connects this effect to other features of high energy experimental data, such as self-similarity [29-31], long-tail distributions [8], and mass spectrum [12].
The intermittency effects observed are probably caused by (i) diffusion of solutes into pores with zero flux between drainage events, thus capturing it from leaching during subsequent flow events, or (ii) hysteresis.
Intermittency effects were examined across three problem sizes: 4, 8, and 12 components.
