While reading the book "Algorithms to live by" by Brian Christian and I came across the concept of probability distributions with memory. In the text they mention the power law distribution as an example.
Doing some online search I did not find much information about the topic:
- what is the definition of a probability distribution with memory?
- Why a power law distribution is a prob. distribution with memory?
- or, what are the basic properties of these distributions...
I only found some non very generic papers on the topic.
I wonder if anyone has knowledge about this or if someone could recommend some useful and accessible literature to a non-expert.
