COLLOQUIUM - AYAN BHATTACHARYA

Ayan Bhattacharya, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, will be speaking.

The presentation title is "Consistency of the PLFit Estimator for Power-law Data."

We prove the consistency of the Power-Law Fit PLFit method proposed by Clauset et al.(2009) to estimate the power-law exponent in data coming from a distribution function with regularly-varying tail. In the complex systems community, PLFit has emerged as the method of choice to estimate the power-law exponent. Yet, its mathematical properties are still poorly understood.
