Examples of Analysis of Multifractals (image) The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences Share Print E-Mail Caption A perfect multifractal graph is symmetrical (upper left corner). Phenomena in the real world often show left-handed asymmetry, such as in variations in the length of sentences in some literary works (upper right corner, the blue dot is a graph for a typical book). Variations in intervals between stock market operations and the number of sunspots (bottom row, from left) show right-handed asymmetry. The horizontal axis represents the degree of singularity, and the vertical axis shows the spectrum of singularity.
