Table 1 The fitting parameters for the mass exponent τ(q) are listed. The column-a1 is the fractal dimension for the time series. In each case the fractal dimension agrees with that obtained earlier using a different method [7]. The last two columns denote the Lévy index and the statistical significance of the comparison of the empirical and theoretical values is p = 0.01
