The Lejan-Sznitman cascade, modified to permit explosion and applied to self-similar Navier-Stokes equation,  has a mean-field simplification in the form of a Ricatti-type equation, termed alpha-Ricatti,  with intriguing probabilistic structure. In this talk we will highlight some of this structure and indicate connections between stochastic explosion and uniqueness theory for the cascade and differential equations, respectively. This is based on joint work with Radu Dascaliuc and Enrique Thomann.
