I'm missing a bit of inbetween-math, and having some trouble understanding this, but:
I want to generate a set of data that follows a power law. Let's say I have 10,000,000 people who like a power-law-distribution of 1,000,000 items, sorted into groups by popularity. Could someone give me an example of/explain to me:
How many people like the 25 most-popular items? How many like the next 50 most-popular items? How many like the next 100? Etc. In simplest-terms/math possible, how do I calculate the number of liked-items for person-N?
Could you break this down for me a bit? Is there a more specific description of what kind of power law this graph follows?
I apologize for my lack of background-knowledge here--I'm coming from a non-mathematical background. Thanks!
