The statistics of meaning: Darwin, Gibbon and Moby Dick

Marcelo Montemurro, Damián Zanette

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    How concentrated is the information in Darwin's Origin of Species? How heavy a read is Gibbon's Decline and Fall? Where does a great white whale fit in? And what on earth is the mysterious Voynich manuscript that has baffled scholars for centuries? Marcelo Montemurro and Damián Zanette look at words and the information they contain. © 2009 The Royal Statistical Society.
