Asymptotic analysis of the model for distribution of high-tax payers
- 25 Downloads
The z-transform technique is used to investigate the model for distribution of high-tax payers, which is proposed by two of the authors (K. Y and S. M) and others –. Our analysis shows an asymptotic power-law of this model with the exponent −5/2 when a total “mass” has a certain critical value. Below the critical value, the system exhibits an ordinary critical behavior, and scaling relations hold. Above the threshold, numerical simulations show that a power-law distribution coexists with a huge “monopolized” member. It is argued that these behaviors are observed universally in conserved aggregation processes, by analizing an extended model.
