Science: Math: Probability: Benford's_Law

Benford's Law
The audit technology is now known as Digital Analysis (DA). It tests for abnormalities in the digit patterns and abnormal number duplication in corporate data.

Benford's Law and Zipf's Law.
With the view to the eerie but uniform distribution of digits of randomly selected numbers, it comes as a great surprise that, if the numbers under investigation are not entirely random but somehow socially or naturally related, the distribution of the first digit is not uniform.

Software which produces and analyses Benford Sets. Hexagonal and Octagonal numbers are also included in the data sets.

Geometrical Interpretation and Generation of Benford Sets
A new approach to Benford's Law, with software and datasets.

Following Benford's Law, or Looking Out for No.1
Dr.Theodore P. Hill asks his mathematics students at the Georgia Institute of Technology to go home and either flip a coin 200 times and record the results, or merely pretend to flip a coin and fake 200 results. (August 4, 1998)
