Benford's Law (also known as the First Digit Law) is well known in statistics of natural phenomena. It states that, when dealing with quantities obtained from Nature, the frequency of appearance of each digit in the first significant place is logarithmic. This law has been observed over a broad range of statistical phenomena. In this paper, we will explore its application to image analysis. We will show how light intensities in natural images, under certain constraints, obey this law closely.doi:10.2312/compaesth/compaesth05/169-176 fatcat:ufsltb6dmjc3jcjllivwnoffhm
