Bak refers to this critical state as a state of self-organized criticality (SOC), since the sand grains on the surface of the sand pile have self-organized to a point where they are just barely stable.
Numerical and analogue modelling of magma segregation has revealed a self-organized criticality phenomenon of the partial melting system.
Due to these characteristics, self-organized criticality is intuitively attractive as a model for brain functions such as perception and action, because it would allow us to switch quickly between mental states in order to respond to changing environmental conditions," said co-author Manfred Kitzbichler.

Shan, Self-Organized Criticality in a Computer Network Model, Phys.
We discuss similarities between molecular systems that are at equilibrium, and complex systems in states of self-organized criticality.
Physicists have explored the possibility that self-organized criticality occurs when sand grains are added to sandpiles, creating avalanches ranging in size from just a few grains to entire slopes (SN: 7/15/89, p.
Power laws, regime shifts, self-organized criticality, phase transitions, network dynamics, econophysics, algorithmic trading and other ideas from the science of complexity are examined.
