I am presenting at the Scientific Staff meeting @ Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders.

A fractal processThis is an interesting theoretical part of my presentation -- a fractal temporal process. Intuitively, we could examine a fractal process similarly as we do for a fractal object. We can zoom in part the process again and again, and if the condition that their statistical properties are similar, we call it a self-similar, or fractal process. To meet such a condition, it usually follows a power-law relationship how the details change with the scaling process.
