Introducing an exponent H different from 1 allows us to detrend f(s) in an adaptive way (that is, detrend it with different values of [(1−q)s] H at different s values). Note that the limit H=1 and q→1 retrieves the standard definition of the derivative of f.A value of q strictly less than 1 makes it possible to enhance possible discrete scale structures in the by:   Apple Inc.
