    [ Abstract: Continuing Best (1998), this paper presents new investigations of the Göttingen Project on Quantitative Linguistics which aims at the examination of the laws controlling the frequency distributions of different kinds of linguistic units in texts and lexica. The main topic was the distributions of word lengths in texts; up to now, more than 40 languages have been investigated with promising results. In the mean time, some word length distributions in lexica are considered as well as the distributions of many other entities in texts. New results concerning the distributions of parts of speech suggest a more general validity of the law, which in the very beginning was intended for word length distributions only. For the time being, there exist very few test results which do not support it. The law of probability distributions concerning classes of entities can be seen as a kind of 'horizontal' language structuring beside others like the distributions of single entities (graphemes, phonemes, word forms, etc.), which follow several empirical distributions (Zipf-Mandelbrot, Geometric and Hypergeometric Distributions), and a 'vertical' one by the Menzerath-Altmann law . Together with the Köhlerian circle, a multiple structuring of language and texts has to be conceived of. ]

    [ Abstract: The statistical properties of the World Wide Web have attracted considerable attention recently since self-similar regimes were first observed in the scaling of its link structure. One characteristic quantity is the number of (in-)links k that point to a particular web page. Its probability distribution P(k) shows a pronounced power-law scaling P(k)~k-gamma that is not readily explained by standard random graph theory. Here, we recall a simple and elegant model for scaling phenomena in general copy- and growth-processes as proposed by Simon in 1955. When combined with an experimental measurement of network growth in the World Wide Web, this classical model is able to model the in-link dynamics and predicts the scaling exponent gamma=2.1 in accordance with observation. ]

    [ Abstract: We propose a user model that explains the shape of the distribution of file sizes in local file systems and in the World Wide Web. We examine evidence from 562 file systems, 38 Web clients and 6 Web servers, and find that this model is an accurate description of these systems. We compare this model to an alternative that has been proposed, the Pareto model. Our results cast doubt on the widespread view that the distribution of file sizes is long-tailed; we discuss the implications of this conclusion for proposed explanations of self-similarity in the Internet. ]

    [ Abstract: We review evidence that Internet traffic is characterized by long-tailed distributions of interarrival times, transfer times, burst sizes, and burst lengths. We propose a new statistical technique for identifying long-tailed distributions, and apply it to a variety of datasets collected on the Internet. We find that there is little evidence that interarrival times and transfer times are long-tailed, but that there is some evidence for long-tailed burst sizes. We speculate on the causes of long-tailed bursts.]
