Bug#987559: ITP: plfit -- fitting power-law distributions to empirical data

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Jerome Benoit <calculus@rezozer.net>

* Package name    : plfit
  Version         : 0.8.2
  Upstream Author : Tamás Nepusz <ntamas@gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/ntamas/plfit
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C, Python
  Description     : fitting power-law distributions to empirical data

This program fits power-law distributions to empirical (discrete or
continuous) data, according to the method of Clauset, Shalizi and
Newman [SIAM Review 51, 661-703 (2009)].

This package is relevant in data analysis. It is actually part
of the igraph C library as vendor software. igraph is a reputed
suite of software to study networks. However plfit is not limited
network study.

I am planning to maintain plfit in behalf of the Debian Science
Maintainers team.
