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

point being one of many possible outcomes encountered during the process.
Fractal behavior is not caused by self-organized criticality. Self-organized
