ISSN/ISBN: 2395-0218 DOI: Not available at this time.

Abstract: It is claimed that the first digits of Niven integer powers follow a generalized Benford law with a specific parameter-free size-dependent exponent that converges asymptotically to the inverse power exponent. Numerical and other mathematical evidence, called first digit counting compatibility, is provided for this statement.
