Краткий обзор статьи: We reveal the fractal nature of patterns arising in random sequential adsorption of particles with continuum power-law size distribution, $P(R)sim R^{alpha-1}$, $R le R_{rm max}$. We find that the patterns become more and more ordered as $alpha$ increases, and that the Apollonian packing is obtained at $alpha to infty $ limit. We introduce the entropy production rate as a quantitative criteria of regularity and observe a transition from an irregular regime of the pattern formation to a regular one. We develop a scaling theory that relates kinetic and structural properties of the system.
