A geometric relation between the h-index and the Lorenz curve
- 62 Downloads
We obtain a remarkable geometric relation between the Lorenz curve of a non-negative, continuous, decreasing function Z(r) and the h-index of integrals defined over a subinterval of the domain of Z(r). This result leads to a new geometric interpretation of the h-index of Z.
