On the controversy over tailweight of distributions
Although understanding tail behavior of distributions is important in many areas, such as telecommunications network analysis and finance, there is considerable controversy about distinctions between exponential-type and power-type tails. This paper explains why the distinctions are surprisingly difficult for popular methods in the literature, and why particularly large samples are needed for clear discrimination.
