# Zipfs law in Multifragmentation

1 LPTMS - Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modèles Statistiques

Abstract : We discuss the meaning of Zipf-s law in nuclear multifragmentation. We remark that Zipf-s law is a consequence of a power law fragment size distribution with exponent $\tau \simeq 2$. We also recall why the presence of such distribution is not a reliable signal of a liquid-gas phase transition.

Keywords : Zipf-s law multifragmetation power law percolation
