N1VUX is my FCC-issued ham radio callsign.
- This is following the OSU Big Ear's SETI ARGUS spiral-fractal cluster-of-clusters design, an extension of Jim Bolinger's original "Argus" Imaging radio telescope or Radio Camera.
The lastest studies in theoretical physics deconstruct the Frequency of occurrence of numbers in the World Wide Web as a sum of power-law distributions.
«The detailed statistics of numbers in the World Wide Web [show] that their distribution is a heavy-tailed dependence which splits in a set of power-law ones. In particular, we find that the frequency of numbers associated to western calendar years shows an uneven behavior: 2004 represents a `singular critical' point, appearing with a strikingly high frequency; as we move away from it, the decreasing frequency allows us to compare the amounts of existing information on the past and on the future. Moreover, while powers of ten occur extremely often, allowing us to obtain statistics up to the huge 10^127, `non-round' numbers occur in a much more limited range, the variations of their frequencies being dramatically different from standard statistical fluctuations. These findings provide a view of the array of numbers used by humans as a highly non-equilibrium and inhomogeneous system, and shed a new light on an issue that, once fully investigated, could lead to a better understanding of many sociological and psychological phenomena.»
