The standard deviation can measure the spread out of a set of numbers and entropy can measure the randomness. However, they do not consider the order of the numbers. This can lead to misleading results where the order of the numbers is vital. An image is a set of numbers (i.e. pixel values) that is sensitive to order. In this paper, an efficient method for measuring the fluctuation is proposed considering the order of the numbers. The proposed method sums up the changes of consecutive numbers and can be used in image processing applications. Simulation shows that the proposed method is 8 to 33 times faster than other related works.
