  • Iafrate, Miller, and Strauch [Equipartition and a Distribution for Numbers: A Statistical Model for Benford's Law," arXiv:1503.08259] construct and test a statistical model for partitioning a conserved quantity. One consequence of their model is Benford's law. This Comment amplifies their work by exploring its thermodynamic consequences.
