hi

i have data which i think is coming from a power law distribution P(X > a) = c/a^k and i would like to find the exponent and constant. i would like it to use my experimental data to find c and k.

also, if i would like to create a new distribution, is it easy to add to R, if so, how is that done?

thanks
