Black swans and dragon knights (or something like that) - what are the latter? I keep recalling the latter every time I think about dragons. I remember "dragon knights" from some presentation or book (mentioned next to black swans), but I can't localise the source. Is it something about in- vs out-of-distribtution outliers?
Hi there. You are probably thinking of "dragon kings" - large scale or large impact events emanating from a unique origin in relation to its peers.
Didier Sornette has written about them in several papers that I know of - around time of financial crisis and following - 2008-2012.
Decent set of references here: the usual Wikipedia disclaimer applies, but it is a place to start.
