Intrinsically anomalous self-similarity of randomly folded matter

We found that randomly folded thin sheets exhibit unconventional scale invariance, which we termed as an intrinsically anomalous self-similarity, because the self-similarity of the folded configurations and of the set of folded sheets are characterized by different fractal dimensions. Besides, we found that self-avoidance does not affect the scaling properties of folded patterns, because the self-intersections of sheets with finite bending rigidity are restricted by the finite size of crumpling creases, rather than by the condition of self-avoidance.
