I recently stumbled upon the notion of an experience curve: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experience_curve_effects#The_experience_curve . It basically says, that plotting the cost per item over the number of produced items will follow a power law with negative exponent.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore's_law on the other side states, that the number of transistors on a CPU doubles every 18 months.
However if one would plot the number of transistors on a CPU not per year, but per number of produced CPUs (which I can't do, because I do not have the data for this) I guess this would give a power law, too.
In that sense can one say that Moores law is just a special case of an experience curve as also found in other industries?
