Models of fractal river basins
Two distinct models for self-similar and self-affine river basins are numerically investigated. They yield fractal aggregation patterns following nontrivial power laws in experimentally relevant distributions. Previous numerical estimates on the critical exponents, when existing, are confirmed and superseded. A physical motivation for both models in the present framework is also discussed.
