Points explanation

How the points are calculated, as used on some of the lists on this site.

For the tables based on points, the following formula is used:

          ( ( ChartSize +1 - Position ) / 100 ) + ( 2.718 ^ ( -Position / 2) ) * ( 0.9 + ( weeknumber / 52 ) / 10 )

 

An explanation of the formula:

( ChartSize +1 - Position ) / 100 )

( 2.718 ^ ( -Position / 2) )

( 0.9 + ( weeknumber / 52 ) / 10 )



This PDF document shows the values given to each position when the chart is made up of 40, 75 and 100 positions.
