Estimation in the Power Law.
Thomas, Hoben
Psychometrika, v46 n1 p29-34 Mar 1981
Psychophysicists neglect to consider how error should be characterized in applications of the power law. Failures of the power law to agree with certain theoretical predictions are examined. A power law with lognormal product structure is proposed and approximately unbiased parameter estimates given for several common estimation situations. (Author/JKS)
