Title: Size-frequency and rank-frequency relations,power laws and exponential relations: a unified approach
Authors: EGGHE, Leo

Citation: Progress in Natural science, 13(6). p. 478-480
Abstract: Power laws, such as Zipf s law, and exponential relations, leading to straight lines in logarithmic or semi-logarithmic scales, are presented in a unified setting. It is shown that the class of size-frequency power laws is larger than the class of rank-frequency power laws. Their ubiquity in all fields of science is illustrated.
