Self-organized criticality is an approach to understanding non-linear systems
initiated by Per Bak and colleagues, as explained in his book How Nature Works
(Bak 1997). Self-organized criticality is one of a whole ... There are, however,
many concepts of self-organization used in science which have subtly different
meanings and which are based on different interpretations of natural systems (as
elucidated for geomorphology by Phillips 1999). Geomorphologists have used a
range of ...

However, Baketal. further suggested that self-organized criticality may be the
underlying system phenomenon that yields complexity andgeneratesspatial and
temporal fractals. ... processes exhibit process fractal behavior, with the critical
point being one of many possible outcomes encountered during the process.
Fractal behavior is not caused by self-organized criticality. Self-organized
criticality is a. 6Per Bak (1996), How Nature Works - The Science of Self-
