In the present study an attempt is made to examine multifractality in multiparticle production in relativistic nuclear collisions; multifractality is investigated in 14.5 A GeV/c 28Si-nucleus collisions. For this, Gq-moments are calculated and variations of  are looked into. Values of mass exponents, tq, and generalised dimensions, Dq, are obtained. Analysis of multifractal moments reveals that multiplicity fluctuations are of dynamical nature.
