An analysis of quantification of statistical correlation functions that are fundamental to determining the material properties was studied. This analysis applies to various classes of materials, including random heterogeneous materials, amorphous many-body systems with spherically symmetric potentials, and materials with directional bonding. The results showed that such analysis places the equilibrium and nonequilibrium states of molecular states of molecular systems in order-metric space.
