Abstract

The intermittency effect is investigated using the assumption that the observed events can be decomposed into randomly distributed self-similar clusters. It is demonstrated that the factorial moments of a single cluster can be extracted from data using the probability that a certain phase-space box is empty of secondaries. The validity of the linked-pair approximation is shown to correspond to independent superposition of monofractal clusters. It is suggested that certain scaling properties of the void probability could signal a thermal phase-transition from the quark-gluon plasma.
