While ascendency measures the degree to which the system possesses inherent constraints, we wish also to have a measure of the degree of flexibility that remains in the system. To assess the degrees of freedom, we first define a measure of the full diversity of flows in the system. To calculate the full diversity, we apply the Boltzmann formula to the joint probability of flow from i to j, Ti} /T, and calculate the average value of that logarithm. The result is the familiar Shannon formula,
