English abstract

We derive the values of the ratio between the e-area and the h-area and the average number of excess citations to papers in the h-core in a shifted Zipf model and in a decreasing exponential citation model.

Item type: Preprint
Keywords: h-index ; excess citations ; shifted Zipf model ; decreasing exponential model
Subjects: A. Theoretical and general aspects of libraries and information. > AB. Information theory and library theory.
