|Title:||Fuzzy techniques explain empirical power law governing wars and terrorist attacks|
|Authors:||Hung T. Nguyen|
|Abstract:||© 2017 IEEE. The empirical distribution of the number of casualties in wars and terrorist attacks follows a power law with exponent 2.5. So far, there has not been a convincing explanation for this empirical fact. In this paper, we show that by using fuzzy techniques, we can explain this exponent. Interesting, we can also get a similar explanation if we use probabilistic techniques. The fact that two different techniques lead to the same explanation makes us reasonably confident that this explanation is correct.|
