Abstract

Abstract. The known statistical data show that the distribution of popular elements and people's income presents the characteristics of power law distribution. At present, the explanation for this phenomenon is mostly through the "rich get richer" theory, but the author believes that this theory has major flaws and fails to provide a reasonable explanation for many phenomena. Therefore, the author expands some empirical and recognized theories in a similar direction in logic, and derives a logical mathematical model through the derivation of mathematical formulas, so as to explain the phenomenon that the distribution of popular elements and people's income presents a power-law distribution. Then, by analyzing various characteristics of social networks and comparing them with some phenomena in nature, the conclusion can be extended to all self-organizing groups in nature.
