title = "Why study multifractal spectra?",

abstract = "We show by three simple examples how multifractal spectra can enrich our understanding of stochastic processes. The first example concerns the problem of describing the speed of fragmentation in a stick-breaking process, the second concerns the nature of a phase transition in a simple model of statistical mechanics, and the third example discusses the speed of emergence in Kingman{\textquoteright}s coalescent.",
