Abstract

Whether Self-Organised Criticality (SOC) can be used as a tool for prediction of events and event sizes has been subject to quite some debate in the past. While conflicting opinions about predictability have been put forward, there has always been widespread agreement that strong correlations exist in SOC. The following brief review summarises some insights from the study of correlations in SOC models.
