Abstract: Different microscopic models exhibiting self-organized criticality are studied numerically and analytically. Numerical simulations are performed to compute critical exponents, mainly the dynamical exponent, and to check universality classes. We find that various models lead to the same exponent, but this universality class is sensitive to disorder. From the dynamic microscopic rules we obtain continuum equations with different sources of noise, which we call internal and external. Different correlations of the noise give rise to different critical behavior. A model for external noise is proposed that makes the upper critical dimensionality equal to 4 and leads to the possible existence of a phase transition above d=4. Limitations of the approach of these models by a simple nonlinear equation are discussed.
