Many complicated platforms reply to non-stop inputs of power via accumulation of tension through the years, interrupted through unexpected power releases referred to as avalanches. the 1st version studied is the viscoelastic interface pushed over illness, that is proven to exhibit the elemental good points of friction. within the mean-field restrict, the friction strength derived semi-analytically is appropriate with laboratory experiments (displaying either speed weakening and call aging). In dimensions, large-scale numerical simulations are in sturdy contract with the fundamental good points of actual earthquakes (Gutenberg-Richter legislation, aftershock migration). the second one version is a non-Markovian variation of Directed Percolation, during which we realize that the universality classification is barely partially converted by way of leisure, a promising discovering with appreciate to our first version.
