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.

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) $.

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.

Any reader formerly unaware of this ``peculiarity'' will find an actual sampling experiment wondrously tantalizing.

[See Hamming (1962) [\cite{Hamming:1962:NMS}] and Exercise 20.] A second justification is based on the fact that many of the numbers that arise in computation represent measurable quantities such as lengths, forces, etc., and it is reasonable to believe that the distribution of the mantissas of such quantities is independent of the units in which they are measured.

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.

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.

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.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, } @Article{Pocheau:1998:SRS, author = "A.

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.

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).

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.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, classmath = "68U99 (Computing methodologies) 68P15 (Database theory) 68P20 (Information storage and retrieval)", fjournal = "Knowledge and Information Systems", keywords = "Markov chain; Web navigation; Zipf's law", } @Article{Losee:2001:TDB, author = "Robert M.

Most research on price clustering has been conducted in Western financial markets, where there is manifest preference for trading at round numbers. We focus on number preferences under Chinese culture. Many Chinese believe some numbers are unlucky and to be avoided. For instance, the number 4 is inauspicious because the Cantonese pronunciation of 4 is similar to the phrase to die . We first document clustering of daily closing prices on six Asia Pacific stock markets, three with predominantly Chinese populations. Next, we fit binomial logit models within these markets to estimate the association between structural and economic factors, and culture, on price clustering. We find some support for the influence of Chinese culture and superstition on year-round number preferences of traders, but it is located solely in the Hong Kong market. Furthermore, in the Hong Kong market Chinese culture and superstition help explain the increased avoidance of the number 4 during the auspicious Chinese New Year, Dragon Boat and Mid-Autumn festivals.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, keywords = "Attraction; Benford's Law; Haziness; Negotiation; Price clustering", } @Article{Caneghem:2002:EMI, author = "T.

According to Carslaw (1988), this type of behaviour is inspired by the existence of the so-called `\$1.99' phenomenon where a price of \$1.99 is perceived as being abnormally lower than one of \$2.00. In the current study, we try to determine whether managers of UK-listed companies also engage in this type of `earnings rounding-up behaviour'. Analogous to the earlier studies, our study compares observed and expected frequencies for the second-from-the-left digit in reported earnings. Our results suggest that managers of UK-listed companies tend to round-up reported pre-tax income, in a way that increases the first digit by one, when they are faced with a nine in the second-from-the-left position for this particular earnings measure. The major contribution of the current study is that it introduces discretionary accruals in this line of research. Discretionary accruals were estimated using both the Jones model (1991) and the modified Jones model as proposed by Dechow et al. (1995). Our results clearly suggest that discretionary accruals are used in order to round-up reported earnings figures.

This article defends the thesis that, to the contrary, empirical data sets are algorithmically incompressible. The reason is that individual data points are determined partly by perturbations, or causal factors that cannot be reduced to any pattern. If empirical data sets are incompressible, then they exhibit maximal algorithmic complexity, maximal entropy and zero redundancy. They are therefore maximally efficient carriers of information about the world. Since, on algorithmic information theory, a string is algorithmically random just if it is incompressible, the thesis entails that empirical data sets consist of algorithmically random strings of digits.

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", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, } @Article{Durtschi:2004:EUB, author = "C.

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.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, fjournal = "ACM SIGMETRICS Performance Evaluation Review", journal-URL = "http://portal.acm.org/toc.cfm?id=J618", keywords = "access control lists; decision trees; packet filtering; routing", } @Article{Dahui:2005:TRZ, author = "Wang Dahui and Li Menghui and Di Zengru", title = "True reason for {Zipf}'s law in language", journal = j-PHYSICA-A, volume = "358", number = "2--4", pages = "545--550", day = "15", month = dec, year = "2005", CODEN = "PHYADX", DOI = "http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.physa.2005.04.021", ISSN = "0378-4371 (print), 1873-2119 (electronic)", ISSN-L = "0378-4371", bibdate = "Wed Feb 27 07:32:55 MST 2013", bibsource = "http://www.math.utah.edu/pub/tex/bib/benfords-law.bib", URL = "http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0378437105004085", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, fjournal = "Physica A.

In particular, we find that the frequency of numbers associated to western calendar years shows an uneven behavior: 2004 represents a singular critical point, appearing with a strikingly high frequency; as we move away from it, the decreasing frequency allows us to compare the amounts of existing information on the past and on the future. Moreover, while powers of ten occur extremely often, allowing us to obtain statistics up to the huge 10 127, non-round numbers occur in a much more limited range, the variations of their frequencies being dramatically different from standard statistical fluctuations.

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.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, fjournal = "ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review", keywords = "file sharing; peer-to-peer; simulation; trace", } @InCollection{Harremoes:2006:ZLH, author = "P.

We show that these events are uniformly characterized by the phenomenon of ``scale invariance,'' that is, the frequency scales as an 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.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, fjournal = "Journal of Conflict Resolution", } @Article{Clauset:2007:PLDa, author = "Aaron Clauset and Cosma Rohilla Shalizi and M.
