Yet another small weekend project (as in “Omg , I have 2 days to make something for myself before I have to go back working on commercial projects!” ) This time I made a simple web crawler that visualises html pages and the links between them In short: Every circle is a page, they try to group per domain, the biggest circle is the start page, the smaller the circle, the more clicks your away from it (the smallest ones are 3 clicks), if there is a connection there is a line between them (the deepest items aren’t checked for connections between each other)
Zipf's law ( pron.: / ˈ z ɪ f / ), an empirical law formulated using mathematical statistics , refers to the fact that many types of data studied in the physical and social sciences can be approximated with a Zipfian distribution, one of a family of related discrete power law probability distributions . The law is named after the American linguist George Kingsley Zipf (1902–1950), who first proposed it (Zipf 1935, 1949), though the French stenographer Jean-Baptiste Estoup (1868-1950) appears to have noticed the regularity before Zipf. [ 1 ] It was also noted in 1913 by Felix Auerbach. [ 2 ] [ edit ] Motivation Zipf's law states that given some corpus of natural language utterances, the frequency of any word is inversely proportional to its rank in the frequency table. Thus the most frequent word will occur approximately twice as often as the second most frequent word, three times as often as the third most frequent word, etc.
