Self-Organized Criticality Sand Piles InBak, Tang, and Wiesenfeld published a paper in Physical Review Letters, “Self-organized criticality: An explanation of noise.”. The author is a physicist who is well-known for his development of the property called "self-organized Criticality", a property or phenomenon that lies at the heart of large dynamical systems.

Researchers have observed characteristic general behavior in systems as diverse as earthquakes, sandpiles, and even biological evolution, and have suggested SOC as a way of understanding this behavior. This book is a clear and concise introduction to the field of self-organized criticality and contains an overview of the main research results.

The aim of the science of self-organized criticality is to yield insight into the fundamental question of why nature is complex, not simple, as the laws of physics imply.

Self-organized criticality explains some ubiquitous patterns existing in nature that we view as complex.
