    The Hurst exponent is used to measure the strength of autocorrelation over an extended time series. It has a number of other applications as well, including evaluating self similarity in fractals. Here's a general reference. The Wiki also has a fairly readable article. If after reading these you have more specific questions, you are free to re-post.
