Solution of two-dimensional self-organized critical manna model

Podlazov Andrej Viktorovich, Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics (Russian Academy of Sciences)

We propose a full solution for Manna model – two-dimensional conservative sandpile model with the rules of grains redistribution isotropic at the average. Indices of the probability distributions of avalanches main characteristics (size, area, perimeter, duration, topplings multiplicity) are determined for this model both from theory and from simulations.  The solution bases on the spatiotemporal decomposition of avalanches described in terms of toppling layers and waves. The motion of grains is divided into directed and undirected types. The former is treated as the dynamics of active particles with some physical properties described.
