Abstract: The general relation between the first-citation distribution and the general citation-age-distribution is shown. It is shown that, if Lotka's exponent small alpha, Greek = 2, both distributions are the same. In light of the above results, and as a simple case, the exponential distribution and the lognormal distribution have been tested and accepted. Also. the nth (n small epsilon, Greek Image) citation distribution is studied and shown to be the same as the first-citation distribution, for every n small epsilon, Greek Image.
