Fractional Brownian motion

  1. Apr 18, 2006 #1
    hey there,
    i'm curious as to why they call it fractional Brownian motion. please don't say its Brownian motion that is fractional :tongue2:

    many thanks

    Here you go -- from the last hit on the first page of the search that I posted:

    from http://www.doc.ic.ac.uk/~nd/surprise_95/journal/vol4/ykl/report.html
    And from the first hit on the search page:
    http://davis.wpi.edu/~matt/courses/fractals/brownian.html
    So it looks like it could be called fractal Bronian motion instead of fractional Brownian motion....
