Hurst Exponent(H)

Definition: [crh] A measure of the bias in fractional Brownian motion. H=0.50 for Brownian motion. 0.50<H<1.00 for persistent, or trendDefinition: >-reinforcing series. 0<H<0.50 for an anti-persistent, or mean-reverting system. The inverse of the Hurst exDefinition: ponent is equal to alpha, the characteristic exponent for Stable Paretian distributions. The fractal dimension of a time series, D, is equivalent to 2-H.
