Contents:
Basic theory of Lotkaian informetrics / Leo Egghe -- Three-dimensional Lotkaian informetrics / Leo Egghe -- Lotkaian concentration theory / Leo Egghe -- Lotkaian fractal complexity theory / Leo Egghe -- Lotkaian informetrics of systems in which items can have multiple sources / Leo Egghe -- Further applications in Lotkaian informetrics / Leo Egghe -- Lotkaian informetrics : an introduction / Leo Egghe.
Summary: Explains many informetric regularities, only based on a decreasing power law as size-frequency function, that is Lotka's law. This book revives the historical formulation of Alfred Lotka and shows the power of this power law, both in classical aspects of informetrics as well as in applications such as social networks and others.
