In a certain temperature and strain rate regime, high entropy alloys deform with sudden slips . We discuss an analytical model model that predicts the statistics and the dynamics of the their time-series properties for different experimental conditions and compare the results to experiments. The results can be used for materials testing and the design of alloys with smooth deformation properties.
