INTRODUCTION TO THE BENFORD LAW
The quasi-empirical Benford law predicts that the distribution of the first significant digit of random numbers obtained from mixed probability distributions is surprisingly meaningful and reveals some universal behavior. In this presentation, a general introduction to this unusual mathematical law and its profound implications to everyday life, politics, and even in science are given.
