Abstract

A procedure for obtaining f{hook}(α) directly from the scaling of histograms of multifractal measures is presented, and is applied to several measures arising in dynamical systems and fully developed turbulence. The method works well when the scaling range is large, and useful statistical information on iso-α sets such as lacunarity can be obtained. However, if the available scaling range is small, corrections of second order become importance and bias the f{hook}(α) curve obtained directly.
