A Study of Multifractal Spectra and Renyi Dimensions in 14.5A GeV/c 28Si-Nucleus Collisions


A systematic analysis of the data on 14.5A GeV/c 28Si-nucleus collisions is carried out to investigate the behaviours of Renyi dimensions, Dq and Multifractal Spectral Function, f(αq). The Renyi dimensions, Dq are observed to decrease with increasing order of the moments, q. However, the Multifractal Spectra are concave downwards with their maxima occurring around αq =1.21±0.01. A continuous curve representing Multifractal Spectral Function, f(αq), characterizes manifestation of fluctuations in the rapidity space.
