poweRlaw: Analysis of Heavy Tailed Distributions
Version 0.70.0

An implementation of maximum likelihood estimators for a variety of heavy tailed distributions, including both the discrete and continuous power law distributions. Additionally, a goodness-of-fit based approach is used to estimate the lower cut-off for the scaling region.
