Write The First Customer Review

Explains numerous informetric regularities based on a decreasing power law as size-frequency function, i.e. Lotka's law. It revives the historical formulation of Alfred Lotka of 1926 and shows the power of this power law, both in classical aspects of informetrics (libraries, bibliographies) and in 'new' applications such as social networks.
