Zipf's law unzipped

- S. K. Baek, Sebastian Bernhardsson, Petter Minnhagen
- Physics, Computer Science
- ArXiv
- 1 April 2011

Why does Zipf's law give a good description of data from seemingly completely unrelated phenomena? Here it is argued that the reason is that they can all be described as outcomes of a ubiquitous ra… Expand

Korean Family Name Distribution in the Past

- Hoang Ahn Tuan Kiet, S. K. Baek, H. Jeong, B. Kim
- Geography, Physics
- 15 November 2007

We empirically study the genealogical trees of ten families for about five centuries in Korea. Although each family tree contains only the paternal part, the family names of women married to the… Expand

The comparison between Behçet's disease and spondyloarthritides: does Behçet's disease belong to the spondyloarthropathy complex?

This study was to clarify whether Behcet's disease (BD) could be classified into the spondyloarthropathy (SpA) complex. It was undertaken on 58 patients with BD (BD group), 56 patients with SpA (SpA… Expand
