By including the variance in the calculation, the ES accounts for the variation within and across samples, making it standardized and even more accurate when descriptions of the asymmetries are investigated [24].
One feature of the method is the opportunity of obtaining integrated asymmetries in the neutron counting rate as in the direction of the T-violating field and in the direction of the P-odd field of weak interaction from the same phase spectrum.

This work develops a theory of evolving systems with special reference to industries, markets, and economies that identifies the basic driving force behind economic transactions as the creation and maintenance of asymmetries in information and defines the value and cost of the information quantitatively in terms of the concept of statistical entropy, thus resulting in a general value transaction theory to be applied to socioeconomic systems.
