Abnormal fluctuations and thermodynamic phase transitions in dynamical systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Phase transitions in the thermodynamic description of the intermittent systems of Manneville are studied in connection to the non-Gaussian fluctuations. The universal critical behavior is derived exactly, with the critical exponent depending only on the characteristic exponent z of the map. Two types of behavior are classified according to z<2 or z2.
