Three models are presented, which describe the aggregation of objects into groups and the distributions of groups sizes and group numbers within habitats. The processes regarded are pure accumulation processes which involve only formation and inva...

In this paper we study a fractal stochastic model for the logarithm of acoustic impedance as a function of depth, in the upper sedimentary part of the crust. By using this model, we propose an explanation of scaling or 1/f geology, the phenomenon...
