%%% discovered and reported first by the
%%% Canadian/American astronomer and
%%% mathematician, Simon Newcomb, in a two-page
%%% note in 1881, and then independently, and
%%% with numerical evidence from much more
%%% measured data, by American physicist Frank
%%% Benford in 1938.
%%%
%%% In Benford's Law, the frequency of leading
%%% decimal digit p is roughly log10(1 + (1 /
%%% p)): that is, approximately 0.301, 0.176,
%%% 0.125, 0.097, 0.079, 0.067, 0.058, 0.051, and
%%% 0.046 for digits 1 through 9, instead of the
%%% expected 1/9 ~= 0.111 for values taken from a
%%% uniform distribution of random numbers.
%%%
%%% Another common statement of Benford's Law is
%%% that the probability that a decimal number
%%% representing a measured value begins with a
%%% nonzero digit not greater than p is log10(1 +
%%% p), that is, approximately 0.301, 0.477,
%%% 0.602, 0.699, 0.778, 0.845, 0.903, 0.954, and
%%% 1.000 for digits 1 through 9.
%%%
%%% For the second digits, the probabilities are
%%% determined by the formula (see
%%% Todter:2009:BLI)
%%%
%%% sum(q = 1:9) log10(1 + 1 / (10*q + p)),
%%%
%%% that is, approximately 0.120, 0.114, 0.109,
%%% 0.104, 0.100, 0.097, 0.093, 0.090, 0.088, and
%%% 0.085, for second decimal digits p = 0
%%% through 9.
%%%
%%% Probabilities for later digits are even
%%% closer: see entries Newcomb:1881:NFU,
%%% Feldstein:1976:CED, and Todter:2009:BLI.
%%%
%%% Benford's Law is not restricted to decimal
%%% numbers: for base b (as long as b is not
%%% huge, according to entry Schatte:1998:BLV),
%%% just change the 10 values to b in the
%%% previous formulas. Here are some results for
%%% selected bases commonly used in computers,

%%% The Fibonacci numbers, and the members of
%%% many other such sequences, can be proved
%%% mathematically to obey Benford's Law exactly
%%% (see entries Raimi:1976:FDP, Berger:2011:BLS,
%%% and Berger:2011:BTB).
%%%
%%% Simon Newcomb made another significant
%%% appearance in the history of science when he
%%% proposed that the then-not-understood
%%% perihelion advance of the planet Mercury
%%% could be explained by modifying Newton's law
%%% of gravitation from a $r^{-2}$ dependence to
%%% $r^{-2.000\,000\,157\,4}$. His proposal was
%%% later shown to contradict more accurate
%%% measurements of the orbit of Earth's Moon.
%%% That story is told on pages 93--95 of
%%% Clifford M. Will's 1993 book, ``Was Einstein
%%% Right?'' (ISBN 0-465-09086-9).
%%%
%%% Although many papers purport to explain
%%% Benford's Law, a recent paper (entry
%%% Berger:2011:BLS) argues that several of the
%%% prior published explanations are flawed. An
%%% earlier paper (entry Raimi:1976:FDP) examines
%%% the literature on Benford's Law up to 1976,
%%% and points out flaws in several previous
%%% explanations of the law. That paper also
%%% gives a bibliography of previous important
%%% works on the problem. A recent survey (entry
%%% Berger:2011:BTB) may provide stronger
%%% mathematical grounds for Benford's Law.
%%%
%%% Benford's Law has been applied to the problem
%%% of detection of fraud in data, elections, and
%%% finance (see, among other entries,
%%% Hill:1998:FDP, Nigrini:1992:DIE,
%%% Swanson:2003:DPF, Durtschi:2004:EUB,
%%% Geyer:2004:DFD, Bhattacharya:2005:CPA,
%%% Cleary:2005:ADA, Lu:2005:DFH, Lu:2006:AFD,
%%% Schneider:2006:RAS, Cho:2007:BBL,
%%% Diekmann:2007:FDU, Hand:2007:DDD,
%%% Todter:2009:BLI, Corazza:2010:CFM, and
%%% Roukema:2014:FDA, and the cautionary view in
%%% Diekmann:2010:BLF).
%%%
%%% Benford's Law also applies to floating-point
%%% numbers in computer arithmetic (see entries
%%% Konheim:1965:MDT, Hamming:1970:DN,
%%% Tsao:1974:DSD, Feldstein:1976:CED,
%%% Feldstein:1986:OUS, Schatte:1988:ASC), where
%%% it has implications for the frequency of
%%% significance loss in subtraction of
%%% like-signed numbers.
%%%
%%% This bibliography also includes publications
%%% about two related empirical laws: Heaps' Law
%%% and Zipf's Law, because they often occur in
%%% discussions of Benford's Law.
%%%
%%% Heaps' Law (see entry Heaps:1978:IRC) is an
%%% empirical observation from linguistics that
%%% the proportion of words from a vocabulary
%%% grows exponentially (but with a small
%%% exponent, often between 0.4 and 0.6) with the
%%% number of words in the text of documents.
%%%
%%% Zipf's Law says that if S is some stochastic
%%% (random) variable, the probability that S
%%% exceeds s is proportional to 1 / s. The
%%% variable S might be, for example, the
%%% population of a city (small cities are more
%%% numerous than large ones). Zipf's Law is
%%% a special case of the Pareto distribution
%%% (see remark in entry Pareto:1896:CEP).
%%%
%%% Zipf's law finds application in the design of
%%% information retrieval systems (e.g., hash
%%% tables, databases, filesystems, and Web
%%% searches), as well as in astronomy, biology,
%%% computer science, demography, earth science,
%%% economics, and physics. See entry
%%% Newman:2005:PLP for an outstanding survey
%%% that deserves to be widely read by
%%% scientists, and entry Baldi:2003:MIW for a
%%% book-length treatment.
%%%
%%% There is an actively-maintained bibliography
%%% of Benford's Law at
%%%
%%% http://www.benfordonline.net/
%%%
%%% (see entry Berger:2009:BOB). It includes
%%% material from entries Hurlimann:2006:BLB and
%%% Nigrini:1992:DIE. Although BibTeX output is
%%% mentioned, it may not yet be implemented.
%%%
%%% There is an online bibliography of Zipf's Law

%%% (see entry Li:2011:ZLB).

Pareto (15 July 1848--19 August 1923), introduced the
80--20 rule in economics (80\% of the wealth is owned
by 20\% of the people, which was true at the time in
Italy, and found to be similar in other countries). He
developed the Pareto distribution, in which a random
variable $X$ has the property that the probability that
it is greater than some number $x$ is given by $ {\rm
Pr}(X > x) = (x_m / x)^\alpha $ for $ x > x_m $, and $
{\rm Pr}(X > x) = 1 $ otherwise. The positive value $
x_m $ is a cutoff, and as $ \alpha \to \infty $, the
Pareto distribution approaches a Dirac delta function,
$ \delta (x - x_m) $. When this models the distribution
of wealth, the exponent $ \alpha $ is called the {\em
Pareto index}.",

abstract = "It has been observed that the first pages of a table
of common logarithms show more wear than do the last
pages, indicating that more used numbers begin with the
digit 1 than with the digit 9. A compilation of some
20,000 first digits taken from widely divergent sources
shows that there is a logarithmic distribution of first
digits when the numbers are composed of four or more
digits. An analysis of the numbers from different
sources shows that the numbers taken from unrelated
subjects, such as a group of newspaper items, show a
much better agreement with a logarithmic distribution
than do numbers from mathematical tabulations or other
formal data. There is here the peculiar fact that
numbers that individually are without relationship are,
when considered in large groups, in good agreement with
a distribution law---hence the name ``Anomalous
Numbers.''\par
A further analysis of the data shows a strong tendency
for bodies of numerical data to fall into geometric
series. If the series is made up of numbers containing
three or more digits the first digits form a
logarithmic series. If the numbers contain only single
digits the geometric relation still holds but the
simple logarithmic relation no longer applies.\par
An equation is given showing the frequencies of first
digits in the different orders of numbers 1 to 10, 10
to 100, etc.\par
The equation also gives the frequency of digits in the
second, third + place of a multi-digit number, and it
is shown that the same law applies to
reciprocals.\par
There are many instances showing that the geometric
series, or the logarithmic law, has long been
recognized as a common phenomenon in factual literature
and in the ordinary affairs of life. The wire gauge and
drill gauge of the mechanic, the magnitude scale of the
astronomer and the sensory response curves of the
psychologist are all particular examples of a
relationship that seems to extend to all human affairs.
The Law of Anomalous Numbers is thus a general
probability law of widespread application.",

importance for secret nuclear work during World War II

paper caught the attention of physicists in the early
1940's and was much discussed. This led to the notes in
Nature by Goudsmit and Furry [3] and Furry and Hurwitz
[4] containing an effort to explain Benford's law. We
considered it at that time merely a welcome diversion
and did not expect that over thirty papers would be
devoted to this subject in subsequent years.'' The 2006

abstract = "It has been noticed by astute observers that well used
tables of logarithms are invariably dirtier at the
front than at the back. Upon reflection one is led to
inquire whether there are more physical constants with
low order first significant digits than high. Actual
counts by Benford [2] show that not only is this the
case but that it seems to be an empirical truth that
whenever one has a large body of physical data,
Farmer's Almanac, Census Reports, Chemical Rubber
Handbook, etc., the proportion of these data with first
significant digit $n$ or less is approximately $
\log_{10}(n + 1) $. Any reader formerly unaware of this
``peculiarity'' will find an actual sampling experiment
wondrously tantalizing. Thus, for example,
approximately $ 0.7 $ of the physical constants in the
Chemical Rubber Handbook begin with $4$ or less ($
\log_{10}(4 + 1) = 0.699 $ ). This is to be contrasted
with the widespread intuitive evaluation $ 4 / 9 $
ths.",

approximately $ \log_{10}(n + 1) $.''\par
\ldots{} ``The only distribution for first significant
digits which is invariant under scale change of the
underlying distribution is $ \log_{10}(n + 1) $.
Contrary to suspicion this is a non-trivial
mathematical result, for the variable $n$ is
discrete.''.\par
From p. 1230: ``The foregoing results bear on questions
of round-off in computing machines. Since $ d(u v) = u
d v + v d u $, the error resulting from multiplying two
rounded numbers will be governed primarily by the first
significant digits of the two numbers being multiplied.
Now the distribution of first significant digits,
favoring as it does low order digits, tends to produce
less error than would be the case if first significant
digits were uniform as has sometimes been
assumed.''\par

However, they report that a more likely distribution is
logarithmic (as predicted by Benford's Law, although
the Newcomb / Benford work is neither mentioned nor

choice of placement of the binary point. They conclude
that it would be humane to place it after the leading

for (1) an empirical set of data, (2) the multinomial
distribution in small samples, (3) spacings between
points dropped on an interval --- the broken-stick
model; and (4) for simulation for several categories.
The several methods produce similar distributions.We
find that the probability that the sum of rounded
percentages adds to exactly 100 percent is certain for
two categories, about three-fourths for three
categories, about two-thirds for four categories, and
about [Formula: see text] for larger numbers of
categories, c, on the average when categories are not

with 8 or 9.\par
Benford also found that the frequency of the digit $p$
being the first digit of a decimal number was very
closely approximated by $ \log (p + 1) - \log p $
[i.e., $ \log (1 + 1 / p) $ ]. This has become known as

abstract = "A self-organising database was developed as part of a
general language analysis system. The periodic,
automatic reorganisation of the database was aimed at
increasing the efficiency of analysis of a language in
which the constituent features exhibit a Zipfian type
rank-frequency relationship. Such a distribution means
that only a small number of features account for a
large proportion of the information, while a large
number of possible features are seldom encountered and
thus seldom accessed within the database. The mechanism
described aims at reconciling two conflicting
procedures: condensation by generalisation of language
features to minimise the total size of the database,
and the particularisation of the few commonly occurring
features to minimise the average analysis time. Results
are presented for the application of this mechanism to
the analysis of batches of FORTRAN programs that
constituted part of the `normal' workload for computers
within five different environments.",

\beta $ and randomly chosen from a logarithmic
distribution. The analysis shows that the $n$ th digit
for $ n \geq 2 $ is actually approximately uniformly
distributed. The approximation depends upon both $n$
and the base beta. It becomes better as $n$ increases,
and it is exact in the limit as $ n \rightarrow \infty
$. A table of this distribution is presented for
various $ \beta $ and $n$, along with a table of the
maximum digit by digit deviation $ \Delta $ of the
logarithmic distribution from the uniform distribution.
Various asymptotic results for $ \Delta $ are

incorporated in this bibliography. It criticizes parts
of \cite{Goudsmit:1944:SFN} as `dead wrong' (and the
author reiterates that view in \cite{Raimi:1985:FDP}.
See also later work \cite{Logan:1978:FDP}. On page 529,
Raimi writes ``If the first digits of all the tables in
the universe obey some fixed distribution law,
Stigler's or Benford's or some other, that law must
surely be independent of the system of units chosen,
since God is not known to favor either the metric
system or the English system. In other words, a
universal first digit law, if it exists, must be
scale-invariant.''",

have found to \cite{Newcomb:1881:NFU}; the earliest is
\cite{Boring:1920:LNL}, which has only brief mention of
the question of digit frequencies. Raimi comments on p.
522: ``This assertion, whatever it may mean, will be
called Benford's Law because it has been thought by
many writers to have originated with the General
Electric Company physicist Frank Benford [2]. Certainly
Benford popularized the problem, and he may well have
been unaware that the polymathic Simon Newcomb,
primarily an astronomer but also sometime editor of The
American Journal of Mathematics, had also formulated
the same law 57 years earlier [1]. There is ample
precedent for naming laws and theorems for persons
other than their discoverers, else half of analysis
would be named after Euler. Besides, even Newcomb
implied that the observation giving rise to the Benford
law was an old one in his day. One would hate to change
the name of the law now only to find later that another
change was called for.''",

large number of numerical tables, the kind that are
printed in almanacs, and in scientific and technical
handbooks. He noticed a most unusual and unexpected
property of many of these tables. Consider, for
example, the numbers representing the populations of
states or all the countries in the world, or their
areas, their budgets, their numbers of hospital beds,
etc. One would expect that on the average just as many
of these entries would begin with the digit $1$ as with

small values of the first digits occur far more

1945 Nobel Prize in Physics. After World War II,
Goudsmit was the scientific head of the Alsos mission
to capture German nuclear scientists. In the 1950s, he
founded the journal Physical Review Letters. During the
1960s and 1970s, he was Editor-in-Chief of the main
American physics journal, the Physical Review.",

paper is intended to clarify the effect of non-unique
keys with various distributions on search times in the

those who must deal with hash tables of this type. It
is found that extreme rank-order frequency distribution
of keys, such as the Zipf distribution, result in much
higher access times than more uniform distributions,
but it is possible to reduce these to some extent by
loading records with common keys on to the hash table
first.",

recognized as the single most important characteristic
of program behaviour, relatively little work has been
done in attempting to measure it. Recent work has led
to the development of an intrinsic measure of program
locality based on the Bradford--Zipf distribution.
Potential applications for such a measure are many, and
include the evaluation of program restructuring methods
(manual and automatic), the prediction of system
performance, the validation of program behaviour
models, and the enhanced understanding of the phenomena
that characterize program behaviour. A consideration of
each of these areas is given in connection with the
proposed measure, both to increase confidence in the
validity of the measure and to illustrate a methodology
for dealing with such problems.",

Freedman [D-F] [\cite{Diaconis:1979:RP}] that a
statistical analysis of Benford's announced data gives
a high probability to the conjecture that he did a bit
of rounding-off here and there, always in the direction
of his law. The license that a physicist often takes on
the path from his hypotheses to verified, observable,
and repeatable conclusion is not justified here.''.",

curves can be described in terms of three distinct

This result has considerable practical significance,

making often incorporates information-retrieval
capabilities with numeric report generation. Of great
concern to the user of such a system is the response
time associated with issuing a query to the database.
This study presents a procedure for estimating response
time for one of the most frequently encountered
physical storage mechanisms, the indexed file. The
model provides a fairly high degree of accuracy, but is
simple enough so that the cost of applying the model is
not exorbitant. The model incorporates the knowledge
that the distribution of access key occurrences is
known to follow Zipf's law. It first estimates the
access time required to complete the query, which
includes the time needed for all input and output
transactions, and CPU time used in performing the
search. The effects of multiple users on an
individual's response time are then assessed using a
simple regression estimation technique. The two-step
procedure allows for the separation of access time from
multiuser influences.",

performance evaluation of the Dynamic Hybrid GRACE Hash
Join Method (DHGH Method) when the tuple distribution

Methods specify the tuple distribution in buckets
statically. However it may differ from estimation since
join operations are applied with selection operations.
When the tuple distribution in buckets is unbalanced,
the processing cost of join operation becomes more
costly than the ideal case when you use Hybrid Hash
Join Method (HH Method). On the other hand, when you
use the DHGH Method, the destaging buckets are selected
dynamically, gives the same performance as the ideal
case even if the tuple distribution in buckets is
unbalanced such as Zipf-like distributions.",

of many different types of complex systems. Zipf's law
is one of the most remarkable frequency-rank
relationships and has been observed independently in
physics, linguistics, biology, demography, etc. We show
that ranking plays a crucial role in making it possible
to detect empirical relationships in systems that exist
in one realization only, even when the statistical
ensemble to which the systems belong has a very broad
probability distribution. Analytical results and
numerical simulations are presented which clarify the
relations between the probability distributions and the
behavior of expected values for unranked and ranked
random variables. This analysis is performed, in
particular, for the evolutionary model presented in our
previous papers which leads to Zipf's law and reveals
the underlying mechanism of this phenomenon in terms of
a system with interdependent and interacting components
as opposed to the ``ideal gas'' models suggested by
previous researchers. The ranking procedure applied to
this model leads to a new, unexpected phenomenon: a
characteristic ``staircase'' behavior of the mean
values of the ranked variables (ranked occupation
numbers). This result is due to the broadness of the
probability distributions for the occupation numbers
and does not follow from the ``ideal gas'' model. Thus,
it provides an opportunity, by comparison with
empirical data, to obtain evidence as to which model
relates to reality.",

abstract = "Suppose you look at today's stock prices and bet on
the value of the first digit. One could guess that a
fair bet should correspond to the frequency of $ 1 / 9
= 11.11 \% $ for each digit from 1 to 9. This is by no
means the case, and one can easily observe a strong
prevalence of the small values over the large ones. The
first three integers 1, 2 and 3 alone have globally a
frequency of 60\% while the other six values 4, 5, 6,
7, 8 and 9 appear only in 40\% of the cases. This
situation is actually much more general than the stock
market and it occurs in a variety of number catalogs
related to natural phenomena. The first observation of
this property traces back to S. Newcomb in 1881 but a
more precise account was given by F. Benford in 1938.
In this note we illustrate these observations with the
enlightening specific example of the stock market. We
also identify the general mechanism for the origin of
this uneven distribution in the multiplicative nature
of fluctuations in economics and in many natural
phenomena. This provides a natural explanation for the
ubiquitous presence of the Benford's law in many
different phenomena with the common element that their
fluctuations refer to a fraction of their values. This
brings us close to the problem of the spontaneous
origin of scale invariant properties in various
phenomena which is a debated question at the frontier
of different fields.",

string frequencies of many symbolic systems (e.g., word
frequencies of natural languages) follows Zipf's law in
good approximation. We show that, contrary to claims in
the literature, Zipf's law cannot be realized by the
central limit theorem(s). The observation that a
log-normal distribution of string frequencies yields an
approximately Zipf-like rank statistics is actually
misleading. Indeed, Zipf's law for the rank statistics
is strictly equivalent to a power law distribution of
frequencies. There are two natural ways to perform the
infinite size limit for the vocabulary. The first one
is the method of choice in the literature; it makes the
upper word length bound tend to infinity and leads in
the case of a multistate Bernoulli process via a
central limit theorem to a log-normal frequency
distribution. An alternative and for text samples
actually better realizable way is to make the lower
frequency bound tend to zero. This limit procedure
leads to a power law distribution and hence to Zipf's
law --- at least for Bernoulli processes and to a very
good approximation for natural languages where it
passes the $ \chi^2 $ test. For the Bernoulli case we
will give a heuristic proof.",

would one say that a list of numbers seems odd. For
this to occur, the numbers are typically highly rounded
or implausible (too much of a coincidence). However
digit pattern analysis, using a computer, can produce
valuable findings not revealed at a mere glance. The
most widely cited paper on digit frequencies was
published by Frank Benford in 1938. With powerful,
low-cost personal computers, Benford's law can help us
to efficiently test the integrity of data. The first
step is to assess whether Benford's law should apply to
the data. If the data is expected to conform, then
Benford's law becomes the expected distribution.
Conformity means that the actual distribution closely
approximates the expected distribution",

automata fulfill the expectation that the frequency of
the first digit is uniform. The molecular dynamics of
fluids, on the other hand, provides trajectories that
follow Benford's law. Finally, three chaotic systems
are considered: Lorenz, H{\'e}non, and R{\"o}ssler. The
Lorenz system generates trajectories that follow
Benford's law. The H{\'e}non system generates
trajectories that resemble neither the uniform
distribution nor Benford's law. Finally, the

the uniform distribution for some parameters choices,

digit in numbers met in a wide range of naturally
occurring phenomena. In data following Benford's Law,
numbers start with a small leading digit more often
those with a large leading digit. Here we demonstrate
that Benford's Law also describes a wide range of
computational phenomena. In particular, we show that a
number of different statistics associated with
computation like space and runtime often follow
Benford's Law. We also show that search cost on input
data that follows Benford's Law is often very different
to that on more uniform data. These results could be
used to improve algorithm performance (for example, for
load balancing or disk de-fragmentation), as well as to
help model algorithm performance. Benford's Law can
also be used to generate data for benchmarking
algorithms that may be more realistic than purely
random data.",

the frequency of numbers in text. An analysis of number
frequencies in text corpora in Dutch, English, German,
and French confirms the expectation that frequency is
highly dependent on two factors: magnitude and
roundness. Roundness (defined as number frequency in an
approximation context) proves to be related to three
arithmetical properties: `10-ness', `2-ness', and
`5-ness'. In predicting the frequency of numbers
irrespective of their context `$ 2 1 / 2 $-ness' should
be added to these factors, as is suggested in the work
of Sigurd (1988). The role of the four number
characteristics found in this study can be explained by
the preference of the language user for using base
numbers, and for doubling and halving quantities.",

abstract = "One of the main activities of Web users, known as
`surfing', is to follow links. Lengthy navigation often
leads to disorientation when users lose track of the
context in which they are navigating and are unsure how
to proceed in terms of the goal of their original
query. Studying navigation patterns of Web users is
thus important, since it can lead us to a better
understanding of the problems users face when they are
surfing. We derive Zipf's rank frequency law (i.e., an
inverse power law) from an absorbing Markov chain model
of surfers' behavior assuming that less probable
navigation trails are, on average, longer than more
probable ones. In our model the probability of a trail
is interpreted as the relevance (or `value') of the
trail. We apply our model to two scenarios: in the
first the probability of a user terminating the
navigation session is independent of the number of
links he has followed so far, and in the second the
probability of a user terminating the navigation
session increases by a constant each time the user
follows a link. We analyze these scenarios using two
sets of experimental data sets showing that, although
the first scenario is only a rough approximation of
surfers' behavior, the data is consistent with the
second scenario and can thus provide an explanation of
surfers' behavior.",

Hypothesis,'' a 19th century observation made by Simon
Newcomb that the beginning pages of logarithm books
were grubbier than the last few pages, implying that
scientists referenced the values toward the front of
the books more frequently. If a data set satisfies
Benford's law, then its significant digits will have a
logarithmic distribution, which favors smaller
significant digits. In this article we demonstrate two
ways of creating discrete one-dimensional dynamical
systems that satisfy Benford's law. We also develop a
numerical simulation methodology that we use to study
dynamical systems when analytical results are not
readily available.",

explanation for the power law relationship between word
frequency and rank, the so-called Zipf's law. They are
generally regarded as null hypotheses rather than
models in the strict sense. In this context, recent
theories of language emergence and evolution assume
this law as a priori information with no need of
explanation. Here, random texts and real texts are
compared through (a) the so-called lexical spectrum and
(b) the distribution of words having the same length.
It is shown that real texts fill the lexical spectrum
much more efficiently and regardless of the word
length, suggesting that the meaningfulness of Zipf's
law is high.",

simulate a simple and generic model that reproduces
Zipf's law. In the proposed model, the time evolution
is considered to be a random walk in the logarithmic
scale reflecting the company asset distribution and/or
the evolution of city populations (e.g. Zipf's law for
income distribution asserts that the size and number of
companies are in inverse proportional relationship).
The paper explains theoretically and shows by numerical
simulation that the introduced model of Zipf's law has
a very robust behaviour when applied to various natural
and social phenomena. The authors do not investigate
the famous case of Zipf's law application to the
frequency of English words, but they speculate that
this case might be also explained within the same time
development of the proposed model.",

estimating the effectiveness of difference coding when
the elements of the sets or the attribute fields in
database tuples are drawn from the uniform and Zipf
distributions. We also examine the case where a
uniformly distributed domain is combined with a Zipf
distribution, and with an arbitrary distribution. We
present limit theorems for most cases, and
probabilistic convergence results in other cases. We
also examine the effects of attribute domain reordering
on the compression ratio. Our simulations show
excellent agreement with theory.",

abstract = "Digits in statistical data produced by natural or
social processes are often distributed in a manner
described by ``Benford's law''. Recently, a test
against this distribution was used to identify
fraudulent accounting data. This test is based on the
supposition that real data follow the Benford
distribution while fabricated data do not. Is it
possible to apply Benford tests to detect fabricated or
falsified scientific data as well as fraudulent
financial data? We approached this question in two
ways. First, we examined the use of the Benford
distribution as a standard by checking digit
frequencies in published statistical estimates. Second,
we conducted experiments in which subjects were asked
to fabricate statistical estimates (regression
coefficients). These experimental data were scrutinized
for possible deviations from the Benford distribution.
There were two main findings. First, the digits of the
published regression coefficients were approximately
Benford distributed. Second, the experimental results
yielded new insights into the strengths and weaknesses
of Benford tests. At least in the case of regression
coefficients, there were indications that checks for
digit-preference anomalies should focus less on the
first and more on the second and higher-digits",

Chi-Square test, total variation distance, and maximum

applications of Benford's Law are summarized and

a large class of demand-driven cache replacement

in a stream of requests through the skewness of its
popularity distribution. Using the notion of
majorization to capture this degree of skewness, we
show that for the policy $ A_0 $ and the random policy,
the output always has less locality of reference than
the input. However, we show by counterexamples that
this is not always the case under the LRU and CLIMB
policies when the input is selected according to a
Zipf-like pmf. In that case, conjectures are offered

abstract = "Packet classification, although extensively studied,
is an evolving problem. Growing and changing needs
necessitate the use of larger filters with more complex
rules. The increased complexity and size pose
implementation challenges on current hardware solutions
and drive the development of software classifiers, in
particular, decision-tree based classifiers. Important
performance measures for these classifiers are time and
memory due to required high throughput and use of
limited fast memory. We analyze Tier 1 ISP data that
includes filters and corresponding traffic from over a
hundred edge routers and thousands of interfaces. We
provide a comprehensive view on packet classification
in an operational network and glean insights that help
us design more effective classification algorithms. We
propose and evaluate decision tree classifiers with
{\em common branches}. These classifiers have linear
worst-case memory bounds and require much less memory
than standard decision tree classifiers, but
nonetheless, we show that on our data have similar
average and worst-case time performance. We argue that
common-branches exploit structure that is present in
real-life data sets. We observe a strong Zipf-like
pattern in the usage of rules in a classifier, where a
very small number of rules resolves the bulk of traffic
and most rules are essentially never used. Inspired by
this observation, we propose {\em traffic-aware\/}
classifiers that obtain superior average-case and
bounded worst-case performance. Good average-case can
boost performance of software classifiers that can be
used in small to medium sized routers and are also
important for traffic analysis and traffic
engineering.",

published research findings are false. The probability
that a research claim is true may depend on study power
and bias, the number of other studies on the same
question, and, importantly, the ratio of true to no
relationships among the relationships probed in each
scientific field. In this framework, a research finding
is less likely to be true when the studies conducted in
a field are smaller; when effect sizes are smaller;
when there is a greater number and lesser preselection
of tested relationships; where there is greater
flexibility in designs, definitions, outcomes, and
analytical modes; when there is greater financial and
other interest and prejudice; and when more teams are
involved in a scientific field in chase of statistical
significance. Simulations show that for most study
designs and settings, it is more likely for a research
claim to be false than true. Moreover, for many current
scientific fields, claimed research findings may often
be simply accurate measures of the prevailing bias. In
this essay, I discuss the implications of these
problems for the conduct and interpretation of
research.",

of some quantity varies inversely as a power of that
value, the quantity is said to follow a power law, also
known variously as Zipf's law or the Pareto
distribution. Power laws appear widely in physics,
biology, earth and planetary sciences, economics and
finance, computer science, demography and the social
sciences. For instance, the distributions of the sizes
of cities, earthquakes, forest fires, solar flares,
moon craters and people's personal fortunes all appear
to follow power laws. The origin of power-law behaviour
has been a topic of debate in the scientific community
for more than a century. Here we review some of the
empirical evidence for the existence of power-law forms
and the theories proposed to explain them.",

workload gathered by crawling the eDonkey network --- a
dominant peer-to-peer file sharing system --- for over
50 days. We first confirm the presence of some known
features, in particular the prevalence of free-riding
and the Zipf-like distribution of file popularity. We
also analyze the evolution of document popularity. We
then provide an in-depth analysis of several clustering
properties of such workloads. We measure the
geographical clustering of peers offering a given file.
We find that most files are offered mostly by peers of
a single country, although popular files don't have
such a clear home country. We then analyze the overlap
between contents offered by different peers. We find
that peer contents are highly clustered according to
several metrics of interest. We propose to leverage
this property by allowing peers to search for content
without server support, by querying suitably identified
semantic neighbours. We find via trace-driven
simulations that this approach is generally effective,
and is even more effective for rare files. If we
further allow peers to query both their semantic
neighbours, and in turn their neighbours' neighbours,
we attain hit rates as high as over 55\% for neighbour
lists of size 20.",

incorporating many of its existing explanations,

that leading digits of random numbers derived from a
chain of distributions that are linked via parameter
selection are logarithmic in the limit as the number of
sequences approaches infinity, and that empirically
only around 5 or 6 sequences of such a distribution
chain are needed to obtain results that are close
enough to the logarithmic (i.e., rapid convergence).
(iii) An outright exact logarithmic behavior for a
2-sequence chain whenever parametrical density is
exactly logarithmic. (iv) An account on the existence
of singularities in exponential growth rates with
regards to the leading digits distributions of their
series. (v) An account on several distributions that
are intrinsically logarithmic or approximately so. (vi)
A conceptual justification of Flehinger's iterated
averaging scheme --- an algorithm that was presented
without any clear motivation. (vii) A note on the close
relationship of Flehinger's scheme and the chain of
distribution to Hill's super distribution. (viii) A
conceptual argument justifying the scale invariance
principle --- a principle invoked in derivations of
Benford's law. (ix) A note on the intimate connection
between one-sided tail to the right in density
distributions and logarithmic leading digit behavior.",

sum of $M$ independent continuous random variables
modulo $1$ to converge to the uniform distribution in $
L^1 ([0, 1]) $, and discuss generalizations to discrete
random variables. A consequence is that if $ X_1,
\ldots {}, X_M $ are independent continuous random
variables with densities $ f_1, \ldots {}, f_M $, for
any base $B$ as $ M \to \infty $ for many choices of
the densities the distribution of the digits of $ X_1 *
\cdots {} * X_M $ converges to Benford's law base $B$.
The rate of convergence can be quantified in terms of
the Fourier coefficients of the densities, and provides
an explanation for the prevalence of Benford behavior
in many diverse systems.",

abstract = "A general methodology is proposed for using digit
distributions as an approach to examining arbitrary
datasets. With the Newcomb--Benford law as a starting
point, a more general framework for digital analysis is
developed. A new measure is proposed based on this
framework, namely the Digital-Fit Factor (DFF). The use
of index comparison on the S\&P500 and the Dow Jones
Industrial Average is demonstrated. The DFF is then
used to construct portfolios and measure their
performance compared with that of the index. The
average returns using the measure exceed the index
composition by 6--14 percentage points per year by
being more stable at the same time. Furthermore, these
measures require only a very small proportion of the
available information and are thus very efficient.",

does not require any parameter tuning. Experimental

the reconstruction algorithm",

inverse power of the severity, $ P(x) \approx x{-
\alpha } $. We find that this property is a robust
feature of terrorism, persisting when we control for
economic development of the target country, the type of
weapon used, and even for short time scales. Further,
we show that the center of the distribution oscillates
slightly with a period of roughly 13 years, that there
exist significant temporal correlations in the
frequency of severe events, and that current models of
event incidence cannot account for these variations or
the scale invariance property of global terrorism.
Finally, we describe a simple toy model for the
generation of these statistics and briefly discuss its
implications.",

abstract = "Urban areas and their voracious appetites are
increasingly dominating the flows of energy and
materials around the globe. Understanding the size
distribution and dynamics of urban areas is vital if we
are to manage their growth and mitigate their negative
impacts on global ecosystems. For over 50 years, city
size distributions have been assumed to universally
follow a power function, and many theories have been
put forth to explain what has become known as Zipf's
law (the instance where the exponent of the power
function equals unity). Most previous studies, however,
only include the largest cities that comprise the tail
of the distribution. Here we show that national,
regional and continental city size distributions,
whether based on census data or inferred from cluster
areas of remotely-sensed nighttime lights, are in fact
lognormally distributed through the majority of cities
and only approach power functions for the largest
cities in the distribution tails. To explore generating
processes, we use a simple model incorporating only two
basic human dynamics, migration and reproduction, that
nonetheless generates distributions very similar to
those found empirically. Our results suggest that
macroscopic patterns of human settlements may be far
more constrained by fundamental ecological principles
than more fine-scale socioeconomic factors.",

abstract = "Digits in statistical data produced by natural or
social processes are often distributed in a manner
described by `Benford's law'. Recently, a test against
this distribution was used to identify fraudulent
accounting data. This test is based on the supposition
that first, second, third, and other digits in real
data follow the Benford distribution while the digits
in fabricated data do not. Is it possible to apply
Benford tests to detect fabricated or falsified
scientific data as well as fraudulent financial data?
We approached this question in two ways. First, we
examined the use of the Benford distribution as a
standard by checking the frequencies of the nine
possible first and ten possible second digits in
published statistical estimates. Second, we conducted
experiments in which subjects were asked to fabricate
statistical estimates (regression coefficients). The
digits in these experimental data were scrutinized for
possible deviations from the Benford distribution.
There were two main findings. First, both digits of the
published regression coefficients were approximately
Benford distributed or at least followed a pattern of
monotonic decline. Second, the experimental results
yielded new insights into the strengths and weaknesses
of Benford tests. Surprisingly, first digits of faked
data also exhibited a pattern of monotonic decline,
while second, third, and fourth digits were distributed
less in accordance with Benford's law. At least in the
case of regression coefficients, there were indications
that checks for digit-preference anomalies should focus
less on the first (i.e., leftmost) and more on later
digits.",

abstract = "Benford's law states that for many random variables $
X > 0 $ its leading digit $ D = D(X) $ satisfies
approximately the equation $ P(D = d) = \log_{10}(1 + 1
/ d) $ for $ d = 1, 2, \ldots {}, 9 $. This phenomenon
follows from another, maybe more intuitive fact,
applied to $ Y := \log_{10}(X) $: For many real random
variables $Y$, the remainder $ U := Y - \floor (Y) $ is
approximately uniformly distributed on $ [0, 1) $. The
present paper provides new explicit bounds for the
latter approximation in terms of the total variation of
the density of $Y$ or some derivative of it. These
bounds are an interesting alternative to traditional
Fourier methods which yield mostly qualitative results.
As a by-product we obtain explicit bounds for the
approximation error in Benford's law.",

major portion of the Internet traffic, and this portion

potential of deploying proxy caches in different
Autonomous Systems (ASes) with the goal of reducing the
cost incurred by Internet service providers and
alleviating the load on the Internet backbone. We
conduct an eight-month measurement study to analyze the
P2P traffic characteristics that are relevant to
caching, such as object popularity, popularity
dynamics, and object size. Our study shows that the
popularity of P2P objects can be modeled by a
Mandelbrot-Zipf distribution, and that several
workloads exist in P2P traffic. Guided by our findings,
we develop a novel caching algorithm for P2P traffic
that is based on object segmentation, and proportional
partial admission and eviction of objects. Our
trace-based simulations show that with a relatively
small cache size, a byte hit rate of up to 35\% can be
achieved by our algorithm, which is close to the byte
hit rate achieved by an off-line optimal algorithm with
complete knowledge of future requests. Our results also
show that our algorithm achieves a byte hit rate that
is at least 40\% more, and at most triple, the byte hit
rate of the common web caching algorithms. Furthermore,
our algorithm is robust in face of aborted downloads,
which is a common case in P2P systems.",

abstract = "Many valuable text databases on the web have
noncrawlable contents that are ``hidden'' behind search
interfaces. Metasearchers are helpful tools for
searching over multiple such ``hidden-web'' text
databases at once through a unified query interface. An
important step in the metasearching process is database
selection, or determining which databases are the most
relevant for a given user query. The state-of-the-art
database selection techniques rely on statistical
summaries of the database contents, generally including
the database vocabulary and associated word
frequencies. Unfortunately, hidden-web text databases
typically do not export such summaries, so previous
research has developed algorithms for constructing
approximate content summaries from document samples
extracted from the databases via querying. We present a
novel ``focused-probing'' sampling algorithm that
detects the topics covered in a database and adaptively
extracts documents that are representative of the topic
coverage of the database. Our algorithm is the first to
construct content summaries that include the
frequencies of the words in the database.
Unfortunately, Zipf's law practically guarantees that
for any relatively large database, content summaries
built from moderately sized document samples will fail
to cover many low-frequency words; in turn, incomplete
content summaries might negatively affect the database
selection process, especially for short queries with
infrequent words. To enhance the sparse document
samples and improve the database selection decisions,
we exploit the fact that topically similar databases
tend to have similar vocabularies, so samples extracted
from databases with a similar topical focus can
complement each other. We have developed two database
selection algorithms that exploit this observation. The
first algorithm proceeds hierarchically and selects the
best categories for a query, and then sends the query
to the appropriate databases in the chosen categories.
The second algorithm uses ``shrinkage,'' a statistical
technique for improving parameter estimation in the
face of sparse data, to enhance the database content
summaries with category-specific words. We describe how

beneficial for a query. A thorough evaluation over a
variety of databases, including 315 real web databases

of leading digits of a chain of probability
distributions converges to Benford's law as the length
of the chain grows. We prove his conjecture in many
cases, and provide an interpretation in terms of
products of independent random variables and a central
limit theorem. An interesting consequence is that in
hierarchical Bayesian models priors tend to satisfy
Benford's Law as the number of levels of the hierarchy
increases, which allows us to develop some simple tests
(based on Benford's law) to test proposed models. We
give explicit formulas for the error terms as sums of
Mellin transforms, which converges extremely rapidly as
the number of terms in the chain grows. We may
interpret our results as showing that certain Markov
chain Monte Carlo processes are rapidly mixing to
Benford's law.",

wide-spread use for reducing the document download
latency over the Internet. Since caches are usually
organized in a hierarchical manner, it is important to
study the performance properties of tandem caches. The
first step in understanding this problem is to
characterize the miss stream from one single cache
since it represents the input to the next level cache.
In this regard, we discover that the miss stream from
one single cache is approximated well by the
superposition of a number of asymptotically independent
renewal processes. Interestingly, when this weakly
correlated miss sequence is fed into another cache,
this barely observable correlation can lead to
measurably different caching performance when compared
to the independent reference model. This result is
likely to enable the development of a rigorous analysis
of the tandem cache performance.",

numbers certain digits are more often leading digits
than others. More formally: the general law states that
the mantissae follow the logarithmic distribution in

mathematicians so that several possible explanations
have been derived, but several questions are still
open. Applications are widespread, for example an
auditing technique (the so-called digital analysis),
which is employed around the world by internal revenue
services to detect tax fraud, is based on this
phenomenon.\par
In this paper it will be shown that there exists no
probability measure that would obey Benford's law for
any base, but if the set of possible bases does not
exceed a given upper limit, most real-life
distributions obey, or can be transformed to obey
Benford's law.",

its global distribution presents a quite remarkable

search for local and global patterns in this
distribution that eventually could shed light into the
ultimate nature of primes. In this work we show that a
generalization of the well known first-digit Benford's
law, which addresses the rate of appearance of a given
leading digit $d$ in data sets, describes with
astonishing precision the statistical distribution of
leading digits in the prime numbers sequence. Moreover,
a reciprocal version of this pattern also takes place
in the sequence of the nontrivial Riemann zeta zeros.
We prove that the prime number theorem is, in the last
analysis, the responsible of these patterns. Some new
relations concerning the prime numbers distribution are
also deduced, including a new approximation to the
counting function $ \pi (n) $. Furthermore, some
relations concerning the statistical conformance to
this generalized Benford's law are derived. Some
applications are finally discussed.",

exponential distribution; the distribution of digits of
zeta base $B$ is known to be very close to Benford's
Law. If there exists a $C$ such that the distribution
of digits of $C$ times the elements of some set is the
same as that of zeta, we say that set exhibits shifted
exponential behavior base $B$ (with a shift of $ \log_B
C \bmod 1 $ ). Let $ X_1, \ldots {}, X_N $ be
independent identically distributed random variables.
If the $ X_i $'s are drawn from the uniform
distribution on $ [0, L] $, then as $ N \to \infty $
the distribution of the digits of the differences
between adjacent order statistics converges to shifted
exponential behavior (with a shift of $ \log_B L / N
\bmod 1 $ ). By differentiating the cumulative
distribution function of the logarithms modulo 1,
applying Poisson Summation and then integrating the
resulting expression, we derive rapidly converging
explicit formulas measuring the deviations from
Benford's Law. Fix a delta in $ (0, 1) $ and choose $N$
independent random variables from any compactly
supported distribution with uniformly bounded first and
second derivatives and a second order Taylor series
expansion at each point. The distribution of digits of
any $ N^\delta $ consecutive differences {\em and\/}
all $ N - 1 $ normalized differences of the order
statistics exhibit shifted exponential behavior. We
derive conditions on the probability density which
determine whether or not the distribution of the digits
of all the un-normalized differences converges to
Benford's Law, shifted exponential behavior, or
oscillates between the two, and show that the Pareto
distribution leads to oscillating behavior.",

research to help prospective authors understand the
often obscure workings of conference program
committees. We present data to show that the
variability between reviewers is often the dominant
factor as to whether a paper is accepted. We argue that
paper merit is likely to be Zipf distributed, making it
inherently difficult for program committees to
distinguish between most papers. We use game theory to
show that with noisy reviews and Zipf merit, authors
have an incentive to submit papers too early and too
often. These factors make conference reviewing, and
systems research as a whole, less efficient and less
effective. We describe some recent changes in
conference design to address these issues, and we
suggest some further potential improvements.",

abstract = "The problem of finding heavy hitters and approximating
the frequencies of items is at the heart of many
problems in data stream analysis. It has been observed
that several proposed solutions to this problem can
outperform their worst-case guarantees on real data.
This leads to the question of whether some stronger
bounds can be guaranteed. We answer this in the
positive by showing that a class of `counter-based
algorithms' (including the popular and very
space-efficient FREQUENT and SPACESAVING algorithms)
provide much stronger approximation guarantees than
previously known. Specifically, we show that errors in
the approximation of individual elements do not depend
on the frequencies of the most frequent elements, but
only on the frequency of the remaining `tail.' This
shows that counter-based methods are the most
space-efficient (in fact, space-optimal) algorithms
having this strong error bound.\par
This tail guarantee allows these algorithms to solve
the `sparse recovery' problem. Here, the goal is to
recover a faithful representation of the vector of
frequencies, $f$. We prove that using space $ O(k) $,
the algorithms construct an approximation $ f* $ to the
frequency vector $f$ so that the L1 error $ ||f -
f*||_1 $ is close to the best possible error $ \hbox
{min}_{f_2} || f_2 - f ||_1 $, where $f$ 2 ranges over
all vectors with at most $k$ non-zero entries. This
improves the previously best known space bound of about
$ O(k \log n) $ for streams without element deletions
(where $n$ is the size of the domain from which stream
elements are drawn). Other consequences of the tail
guarantees are results for skewed (Zipfian) data, and
guarantees for accuracy of merging multiple summarized
streams.",

abstract = "In this article, we explore a novel sampling model,
called {\em feature preserved sampling\/} ({\em FPS\/})
that sequentially generates a high-quality sample over
sliding windows. The sampling quality we consider
refers to the degree of consistency between the sample
proportion and the population proportion of each
attribute value in a window. Due to the time-variant
nature of real-world datasets, users are more likely to
be interested in the most recent data. However,
previous works have not been able to generate a
high-quality sample over sliding windows that precisely
preserves up-to-date population characteristics.
Motivated by this shortcoming, we have developed the
{\em FPS\/} algorithm, which has several advantages:
(1) it sequentially generates a sample from a
time-variant data source over sliding windows; (2) the
execution time of {\em FPS\/} is linear with respect to
the database size; (3) the {\em relative\/}
proportional differences between the sample proportions
and population proportions of most distinct attribute
values are guaranteed to be below a specified error
threshold, $ \epsilon $, while the {\em relative\/}
proportion differences of the remaining attribute
values are as close to $ \epsilon $ as possible, which
ensures that the generated sample is of high quality;
(4) the sample rate is close to the user specified rate
so that a high quality sampling result can be obtained
without increasing the sample size; (5) by a thorough
analytical and empirical study, we prove that {\em
FPS\/} has acceptable space overheads, especially when
the attribute values have Zipfian distributions, and
{\em FPS\/} can also excellently preserve the
population proportion of multivariate features in the
sample; and (6) {\em FPS\/} can be applied to infinite
streams and finite datasets equally, and the generated
samples can be used for various applications. Our
experiments on both real and synthetic data validate
that {\em FPS\/} can effectively obtain a high quality
sample of the desired size. In addition, while using
the sample generated by {\em FPS\/} in various mining
applications, a significant improvement in efficiency
can be achieved without compromising the model's
precision.",

Benford's law if $ \log (X) $ is uniform $ \bmod 1 $.
Many experimental data sets prove to follow an
approximate version of it, and so do many mathematical
series and continuous random variables. This phenomenon
received some interest, and several explanations have
been put forward. Most of them focus on specific data,
depending on strong assumptions, often linked with the
log function. Some authors hinted --- implicitly ---
that the two most important characteristics of a random
variable when it comes to Benford are regularity and
scatter. In a first part, we prove two theorems, making
up a formal version of this intuition: scattered and
regular r.v.'s do approximately follow Benford's law.
The proofs only need simple mathematical tools, making
the analysis easy. Previous explanations thus become
corollaries of a more general and simpler one. These
results suggest that Benford's law does not depend on
properties linked with the log function. We thus
propose and test a general version of the Benford's
law. The success of these tests may be viewed as an a
posteriori validation of the analysis formulated in the
first part.",

been used in business and scientific applications,
especially in fraud detection for financial data. In
this paper, we analyse whether Benford's law holds in
economic research and forecasting. First, we examine
the distribution of regression coefficients and
standard errors in research papers, published in
Empirica and Applied Economics Letters. Second, we
analyse forecasts of GDP growth and CPI inflation in
Germany, published in Consensus Forecasts. There are
two main findings: The relative frequencies of the
first and second digits in economic research are
broadly consistent with Benford's law. In sharp
contrast, the second digits of Consensus Forecasts
exhibit a massive excess of zeros and fives, raising
doubts on their information content.",

result values for multi-word queries using the total
number of pages indexed by Google and by applying the
Zipf power law to the words per page distribution on
the internet and Heaps' law for unique word counts.
Based on data from 351 word pairs each with exactly one
hit when searched for together, and a Zipf law
coefficient determined in other studies, we approximate
the Heaps' law coefficient for the indexed worldwide
web (about 8 billion pages) to be $ \beta = 0.52 $.
Previous studies used under 20,000 pages. We
demonstrate through examples how the model can be used
to analyse automatically the relatedness of word pairs
assigning each a value we call ``strength of
associativity''. We demonstrate the validity of our
method with word triplets and through two experiments
conducted 8 months apart. We then use our model to
compare the index sizes of competing search giants
Yahoo and Google.",

with the Benford's distribution hypothesis. It can be
seen in the process that data pertaining to financial
accounts, which have not been audited by the so-called
``Big 4'' audit firms, but by smaller external
auditors, deviate to a significant extent from the
regularity of Benford's Law, which appears to make the

based on the mantissas of the logarithms allows for a
determination of whether a set of numbers obeys BL or
not. We show that BL applies to numbers obtained from
the {\it multiplication\/} or {\it division\/} of
numbers drawn from any distribution. We also argue that
(most of) the real-life sets that obey BL are because
they are obtained from such basic arithmetic
operations. We exhibit that all these arguments were

Iranian presidential election are analysed assuming
proportionality of candidates' votes to the total vote

Benford's Law. A highly significant ($ p \approx 0.0007
$ ) excess of vote counts for candidate $K$ that start
with the digit 7 is found (41 observed, 21.2--22
expected). Using this property as a selection criterion
leads to the following coincidences. (i) Among the six
most populous voting areas, this criterion selects
those three that have greater proportions of votes for
A than the other three. The probability that the two
sub-groups are drawn from the same distribution is $ p
\approx 0.1 $. (ii) $K$'s vote counts for these same
three voting areas all have the same second digit. The
probability of this is $ p \approx 0.01 $. (iii) Most
(75\%) of the vote counts for $K$ in voting areas with
70 to 79 votes for $K$ are odd, and every even number
occurs exactly once. The probability of the latter is $
p \approx 0.0005 $. Interpreting the big city effect
(i) +( ii) as an overestimate of the true vote, assumed
to be roughly 50\% to match other data, while retaining
constant total vote numbers and increasing votes for
the other three candidates in proportion to their
average voting percentages, would imply that the
difference between A's and M's vote totals would drop
by about one million votes. These results do not
exclude other anomalies.",

files in a parallel I/O system has been extensively
investigated. A basic workload characteristic
assumption of most existing solutions to the problem is
that there exists a strong inverse correlation between
file access frequency and file size. In other words,
the most popular files are typically small in size,
while the large files are relatively unpopular. Recent
studies on the characteristics of Web proxy traces
suggested, however, the correlation, if any, is so weak
that it can be ignored. Hence, the following two
questions arise naturally. First, can existing
algorithms still perform well when the workload
assumption does not hold? Second, if not, can one
develop a new file assignment strategy that is immune
to the workload assumption? To answer these questions,
we first evaluate the performance of three well-known
file assignment algorithms with and without the
workload assumption, respectively. Next, we develop a
novel static nonpartitioned file assignment strategy
for parallel I/O systems, called static round-robin
(SOR), which is immune to the workload assumption.
Comprehensive experimental results show that SOR
consistently improves the performance in terms of mean
response time over the existing schemes.",

abstract = "We show that the laws of Zipf and Benford, obeyed by
scores of numerical data generated by many and diverse
kinds of natural phenomena and human activity are
related to the focal expression of a generalized
thermodynamic structure. This structure is obtained
from a deformed type of statistical mechanics that
arises when configurational phase space is incompletely
visited in a severe way. Specifically, the restriction
is that the accessible fraction of this space has
fractal properties. The focal expression is an
(incomplete) Legendre transform between two entropy (or
Massieu) potentials that when particularized to first
digits leads to a previously existing generalization of
Benford's law. The inverse functional of this
expression leads to Zipf's law; but it naturally
includes the bends or tails observed in real data for
small and large rank. Remarkably, we find that the
entire problem is analogous to the transition to chaos
via intermittency exhibited by low-dimensional
nonlinear maps. Our results also explain the generic
form of the degree distribution of scale-free
networks.",

proportion of numbers whose first significant digit is
a $1$ (e.g., $ 0.00131 $ and $ 19668 $ both have first
significant digit $1$ ) in a variety of datasets. In
these datasets, which arise in various compendiums or
as mixtures of various sets of numbers, the proportion
of numbers with first significant digit one is $ 0.3010
$ which is much higher than the commonsense value of $
1 / 9 $. The reasons for this occurrence have been
elusive. Mathematical attempts to explain this
phenomenon have been relatively fruitless. Methods
involving probability have been somewhat more
successful. In this article we give some simple reasons
for this occurrence and also give an example of a
general mixture of distributions which exactly
satisfies this Law. Various other examples and
counterexamples are also given.",

Based on this fact, it has been suggested recently,
that this law should be used to test the quality of
nuclear decay models. In this paper we briefly recall
how, when and why the Newcomb--Benford law can be
observed in a set of numbers with a given probability
distribution. We investigate the special case of
nuclear half-lives, and show that the law provides no
additional clue in understanding decay half-lives.
Thus, it can play no significant role in testing
nuclear decay theories.",

abstract = "More than 100 years ago it was predicted that the
distribution of first digits of real world observations
would not be uniform, but instead follow a trend where
measurements with lower first digit (1, 2, \ldots {})
occur more frequently than those with higher first
digits (\ldots {}, 8, 9). This result has long been
known but regarded largely as a mathematical curiosity
and received little attention in the natural sciences.
Here we show that the first digit rule is likely to be
a widespread phenomenon and may provide new ways to
detect anomalous signals in data. We test 15 sets of
modern observations drawn from the fields of physics,
astronomy, geophysics, chemistry, engineering and
mathematics, and show that Benford's law holds for them
all. These include geophysical observables such as the
length of time between geomagnetic reversals, depths of
earthquakes, models of Earth's gravity, geomagnetic and
seismic structure. In addition we find it also holds
for other natural science observables such as the
rotation frequencies of pulsars; green-house gas
emissions, the masses of exoplanets as well as numbers
of infectious diseases reported to the World Health
Organization. The wide range of areas where it is
manifested opens up new possibilities for exploitation.
An illustration is given of how seismic energy from an
earthquake can be detected from just the first digit
distribution of displacement counts on a seismometer,
i.e., without actually looking at the details of a
seismogram at all. This led to the first ever detection
of an earthquake using first digit information alone.",

their first digits conform to this law. However, the
barycentric period shows significant deviation from the

We find that the first-digit distribution follows
Benford's law and fluctuates slightly in a periodical
manner with respect to the logarithm of the
temperature. The fluctuation decreases when $q$
increases, and the result converges to Benford's law
exactly as $q$ approaches 2. The relevant regularities

and the Bose--Einstein (BE) distribution, and find that
the BG and FD distributions both fluctuate slightly in
a periodic manner around the Benford distribution with

distribution conforms to it exactly whatever the
temperature is. Thus the Benford's law seems to present

even more fundamental and profound in nature.

abstract = "Why does Zipf's law give a good description of data
from seemingly completely unrelated phenomena? Here it
is argued that the reason is that they can all be
described as outcomes of a ubiquitous random group
division: the elements can be citizens of a country and
the groups family names, or the elements can be all the
words making up a novel and the groups the unique
words, or the elements could be inhabitants and the
groups the cities in a country and so on. A random
group formation (RGF) is presented from which a
Bayesian estimate is obtained based on minimal
information: it provides the best prediction for the
number of groups with $k$ elements, given the total
number of elements, groups and the number of elements
in the largest group. For each specification of these
three values, the RGF predicts a unique group
distribution $ N(k) \propto \exp ( - b k) / k^\gamma $,
where the power-law index $ \gamma $ is a unique
function of the same three values. The universality of
the result is made possible by the fact that no
system-specific assumptions are made about the
mechanism responsible for the group division. The
direct relation between $ \gamma $ and the total number
of elements, groups and the number of elements in the
largest group is calculated. The predictive power of
the RGF model is demonstrated by direct comparison with
data from a variety of systems. It is shown that $
\gamma $ usually takes values in the interval $ 1 \leq
\gamma \leq 2 $ and that the value for a given
phenomenon depends in a systematic way on the total
size of the dataset. The results are put in the context
of earlier discussions on Zipf's and Gibrat's laws, $
N(k) \propto k^{-2} $ and the connection between growth
models and RGF is elucidated.",

first digit base 10 of the Fibonacci numbers, or of $
2^n $, equals 1 not 10\% or 11\% of the time, as one
would expect if all digits were equally likely, but
about 30\% of the time. This phenomenon, known as
Benford's Law, has many applications, ranging from
detecting tax fraud for the IRS to analyzing round-off
errors in computer science.\par
The central question is determining which data sets
follow Benford's law. Inspired by natural processes
such as particle decay, our work examines models for
the decomposition of conserved quantities. We prove
that in many instances the distribution of lengths of
the resulting pieces converges to Benford behavior as
the number of divisions grow. The main difficulty is
that the resulting random variables are dependent,
which we handle by a careful analysis of the
dependencies and tools from Fourier analysis to obtain
quantified convergence rates.",

abstract = "A `monkey book' is a book consisting of a random
sequence of letters and blanks, where a group of
letters surrounded by two blanks is defined as a word.
We compare the statistics of the word distribution for
a monkey book to real books. It is shown that the word
distribution statistics for the monkey book is
different and quite distinct from a typical real book.
In particular, the monkey book obeys Heaps' power law
to an extraordinarily good approximation, in contrast
to the word distributions for real books, which deviate
from Heaps' law in a characteristic way. This
discrepancy is traced to the different properties of a
`spiked' distribution and its smooth envelope. The
somewhat counter-intuitive conclusion is that a `monkey
book' obeys Heaps' power law precisely because its
word-frequency distribution is not a smooth power law,
contrary to the expectation based on simple
mathematical arguments that if one is a power law, so
is the other.",

that a random integer has initial digit d'', we define
a URI-set as a random set E of natural integers such
that each n>0 belongs to E with probability 1/n,
independently of other integers. This enables us to
introduce two notions of densities on natural numbers:
The URI-density, obtained by averaging along the
elements of $E$, and the local URI-density, which we
get by considering the $k$-th element of $E$ and
letting $k$ go to infinity. We prove that the elements
of $E$ satisfy Benford's law, both in the sense of
URI-density and in the sense of local URI-density.
Moreover, if $ b_1 $ and $ b_2 $ are two
multiplicatively independent integers, then the
mantissae of a natural number in base $ b_1 $ and in
base $ b_2 $ are independent. Connections of
URI-density and local URI-density with other well-known
notions of densities are established: Both are stronger
than the natural density, and URI-density is equivalent
to log-density. We also give a stochastic
interpretation, in terms of URI-set, of the $ H_\infty
$-density.",

theorem: by updating our initial beliefs with objective

subjectivity run amok. In the first-ever account of
Bayes' rule for general readers, Sharon Bertsch
McGrayne explores this controversial theorem and the
human obsessions surrounding it. She traces its
discovery by an amateur mathematician in the 1740s
through its development into roughly its modern form by
French scientist Pierre Simon Laplace. She reveals why
respected statisticians rendered it professionally
taboo for 150 years --- at the same time that
practitioners relied on it to solve crises involving
great uncertainty and scanty information, even breaking
Germany's Enigma code during World War II, and explains
how the advent of off-the-shelf computer technology in
the 1980s proved to be a game-changer. Today, Bayes'
rule is used everywhere from DNA de-coding to Homeland
Security. Drawing on primary source material and
interviews with statisticians and other scientists, The
Theory That Would Not Die is the riveting account of
how a seemingly simple theorem ignited one of the
greatest controversies of all time.",

here numerical data on the country-wise adherent
distribution of seven major world religions i.e.,
Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism,
Judaism and Baha'ism to see if the proportion of the
leading digits occurring in the distribution conforms
to Benford's law. We find that the adherent data of all
the religions, except Christianity, excellently does
conform to Benford's law. Furthermore, unlike the
adherent data on Christianity, the significant digit
distribution of the three major Christian denominations
i.e. Catholicism, Protestantism and Orthodoxy obeys the
law. Thus in spite of their complexity general laws can
be established for the evolution of the religious
groups.",

auditors have successfully used Benford's law as part
of their fraud detection processes. Benford's law
proposes a distribution for first digits of numbers in
naturally occurring data. Government accounting and
statistics are similar in nature to financial
accounting. In the European Union (EU), there is
pressure to comply with the Stability and Growth Pact
criteria. Therefore, like firms, governments might try
to make their economic situation seem better. In this
paper, we use a Benford test to investigate the quality
of macroeconomic data relevant to the deficit criteria

that the data reported by Greece shows the greatest

abstract = "A century ago, it was predicted that the first
significant digit appearing in a data would be
nonuniformly distributed, with the number one appearing
with the highest frequency. This law goes by the name
of Benford's law. It holds for data ranging from
infectious disease cases to national greenhouse gas
emissions. Quantum phase transitions are cooperative
phenomena where qualitative changes occur in many-body
systems at zero temperature. We show that the
century-old Benford's law can detect quantum phase
transitions, much like it detects earthquakes.
Therefore, being certainly of very different physical
origins, seismic activity and quantum cooperative
phenomena may be detected by similar methods. The
result has immediate implications in precise
measurements in experiments in general, and for
realizable quantum computers in particular. It shows
that estimation of the first significant digit of
measured physical observables is enough to detect the
presence of quantum phase transitions in macroscopic
systems.",

showed that Benford's law (describing the logarithmic
distribution of the numbers 1, 2, \ldots{}, 9 as first
digits of data in decimal form) is related to the
classical law of Zipf with exponent 1. The work of
Campanario and Coslado (2011), however, shows that
Benford's law does not always fit practical data in a
statistical sense. In this article, we use a
generalization of Benford's law related to the general
law of Zipf with exponent $ \beta > 0 $. Using data
from Campanario and Coslado, we apply nonlinear least
squares to determine the optimal $ \beta $ and show
that this generalized law of Benford fits the data
better than the classical law of Benford.",
