Jensen, H. J. (1998). Self-organized Criticality: Emergent Complex Behavior in Physical and Biological Systems. Cambridge Lecture Notes in Physics, Cambridge. (Jensen discusses the spontaneous development of complex behavior in certain many-body systems whose dynamics vary abruptly and explains what constitutes SOC, where it occurs and then analyzes computer models and their mathematics.)

Pietronero, L., A. Vespignani and S. Zapperi (1994). Renormalization scheme for self-organized criticality in sandpile models. Phys. Rev. Lett. 72: 1690-1693. (These authors introduce a scheme characterizing the critical state and the scale-invariant dynamics of models of sandpiles. The results agree well with computer simulations and can be extended to situations having non-equilibrium stationary states that might apply to hemocoels.)
