Multifractal f(a) Curve

  1. Mar 2, 2007 #1
    Has anybody ever come across a dataset which does the following?

    I use the continuous multifractal (method of moments) technique to derive for a range of q
    [tex]\tau , \alpha , f(\alpha ) [/tex]

    However I find that [tex]f(\alpha ) = \alpha[/tex] for every value q being examined. Therefore there is strictly no hyperbola for the f(a) curve and the data is therefore can't be multifractal. Right?

    Thanks in advance :smile:

    Never mind.

    Found a paper which discusses the issue in relation to Cantor sets :)

    Apparently it just means that it's mono-fractal and not multifractal. Which is what I thought, this paper just confirmed it.

    Mods feel free to delete post if necessary.

    multifractal analysis

    Hi all,

    I am preparing a thesis at the multifractal and fractal analysis of radar images, to automatically set and remove clutter. I came to develop programs telque boxcountig function and of codimension years .. but I stopped confused when is about to determine the double trace moment ..any idea or just signs from you make me be grateful.

    Thanks in advance
