Abstract : The paper explores the mathematical relations between power functions (e.g., hydraulic geometry relations) and geometric progressions (Horton's laws) for stream networks in general, and tidal networks in particular. The exponent of the power function is the quotient of the logarithm of the Horton ratio of the dependent variable to the logarithm of the Horton ratio of the independent variable. (Author)
