How much can we influence the rate of innovation?

When we assume a specific distribution for the complexity of products, we can explicitly write the relation between the future average size of the product space and the current average size. For a Poisson distribution of product complexity with mean Embedded Image, the average number of products with complexity c isEmbedded ImageSubstituting this into Eq. 5, with x = n′/n, yieldsEmbedded Image

Similarly, for a binomial distribution of product complexity with event probability 1/2, the average number of products with complexity c isEmbedded ImageSubstituting this into Eq. 5, with x = n′/n, yieldsEmbedded Image
