In science:

By matching the scaling of |∂ u/∂ x| with that of |u(x+ η)−u(x)| in the inertial range, one also expects Gq (r ∼ η) ∼ ξαq , where αq is another q dependent exponent .
Turbulent self-organized criticality
For 1 < t < ξ one expects fq ∼ const., which leads to a power law t-dependence, Fq (t) ∼ tζq , in the analog of the inertial range.
Turbulent self-organized criticality
The t-dependence of Fq in the inertial range shows some degree of extended selfsimilarity, a well known property of structure functions in turbulence : log-log plots of Fq (t)q vs F1 (t) (Fig. 2) are rather straight in the range corresponding to the inertial regime.
Turbulent self-organized criticality
In analogy with turbulence we expect hǫq in the inertial range.
Turbulent self-organized criticality
Note that while the term characterized by γ could be an inertial term, we will consider in the following only situations where all inertial terms are neglected.
