Another book chapter is up!

I just wanted to say thanks to the dozen or so folks that have emailed corrections for typos in the chapters of our book that I’ve posted so far…  And, we’ve now posted another chapter.  This chapter is on “multiplicative processes”.  For me, multiplicative processes are almost always the answer to the question of “where do heavy-tails come from?”  So, this is a pretty important chapter for the book…and for developing intuition about when to expect heavy-tailed distributions to emerge.

You can download the new chapter here.

I look forward to your comments!  None of the chapters have been properly edited yet, so I apologize in advance for the typos you’ll surely find…
