Power-law distributions are the subject of this article. 1Power laws also occur in many situations other than the statistical distributions of quantities. For instance, Newton’s famous 1=r2law for gravity has a power-law form with exponent \u000b=2.

We also apply the proposed methods to twenty-four real-world data sets from a range of diﬀerent disciplines, each of which has been conjectured to follow a power-law distribution. In some cases we ﬁnd these conjectures to be consistent with the data, while in others the power law is ruled out.

Few empirical distributions fit a power law for all their values, but rather follow a power law in the tail. Acoustic attenuation follows frequency power-laws within wide frequency bands for many complex media. Allometric scaling laws for relationships between biological variables are among the best known power-law functions in nature.

This package implements both the discrete and continuous maximum likelihood estimators for fitting the power-law distribution to data using the methods described in Clauset et al, 2009. It also provides function to fit log-normal and Poisson distributions.
