CONTINUUM-DISCRETE TRANSITIONS
It was hiding in GEOPHYSICS.
This is what I get for looking at the little stuff.

modeling problems due to individual vs collective – yay – this paper’s good already.
Yes! While I’m not looking for geophysics, I _am_ looking for something I can latch onto for a solid analogy and I think this may work, if it goes in the direction I hope it does and gets specific.
 
“The homogeneous and fractal frameworks may be
viewed as opposite end-member cases that do not account
for evolutionary changes of geometrical and material
properties of faults, different regional conditions, and the
possible existence of multiple dynamic regimes. In the
homogeneous-continuum framework the lack of evolution-
ary changes is deterministic and strict, while in the fractal-
SOC frameworks it is statistical and associated with
scale-invariant heterogeneities. “

 little creep does all that crack – red looks like nothing but what it does has magnitude.
This is the part I’m curious about. I’ve seen it mentioned in earthquake stuff, in atomic scale stuff and they all call it “slow”
 
Apparently it operates at the same velocity regardless of scale and is weak yet seems to be the precursor just the same and has to travel the whole length of the “crack that’s coming” before the crack moves on to the next stage.
 
So, more heat than light at the moment as it were. Undoubtedly something of what I said just now is wrong. But it’s intriguing.

 I’d been expecting to see Hopf bifurcation all this time and this is the first I’ve seen of it. So fingers crossed.
“Steady and intermittent slipping in a model of landslide motion regulated by pore-pressure feedback
DG Schaeffer, RM Iverson – SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics, 2008 – SIAM
This paper studies a parsimonious model of landslide motion, which consists of the one-dimensional diffusion equation (for pore pressure) coupled through a boundary condition to
a first-order ODE (Newton’s second law)”
