Examples

For this reason, powerlaws in empirical data are often studied by plotting the logarithm (in this paper, when we word correspond to the natural  neperian  logarithm function) of the histogram as a function of the logarithm of the values of the random variable, and doing a linear regression to fit an affine line to through the data points (usually using a leastsquares algorithm).
