Abstract : This paper presents results on symmetries of the spectrum of singularities for random cascades found in the statistical theory of turbulence. It is shown that empirical dimension curves possess a natural symmetry whose presence restricts the class of allowable probability distributions of the cascade generator in a simple manner. In particular, necessary and sufficient conditions on the probability distribution of the generator are obtained for symmetry of the singularity spectrum within a large class of cascade models.
