Properties of self-similarity and fractality in the processes of interactions of hadrons and nuclei at high energies are discussed. Different methods of fractal analysis (the box counting BC, system of the equations of p-adic coverage S ePaC methods) are described. Fractal analysis of mixed events was carried out by BC and S ePaC methods. The procedure of separation of fractals and background, estimation of the number of fractals in the original data set and contamination of the extracted data was proposed. The dependence of event contamination on multiplicity and background is studied. Reconstruction of the spectrum of fractal dimensions is found to depend on the method and background.
