                - You observed X2 to give k2 successes out of n2 trials.

              X2 have the same parameter.  The return value of this function will be:
                - Close to 0 if they are probably the same.

                - Smaller than 0 if X2 probably has a higher "success" rate than X1. 
              Moreover, the larger the absolute magnitude of the return value the more
              likely it is that X1 and X2 have different distributions.

                - Observed event A to happen A_count times.
                - Observed event B to happen B_count times.
                - Observed AB_count co-occurrences of the events.  That is, AB_count is the
                  number of times the events happened together during the same measurement.
            - This function returns a number, COR, which can take any real value.  It has
              the following interpretations:
                - COR == 0: there is no evidence of correlation between the two events.
                  They appear to be unrelated.
                - COR > 0: There is evidence that A and B co-occur together.  That is,
                  they happen at the same times more often than you would expect if they
                  were independent events.  The larger the magnitude of COR the more
                  evidence we have for the correlation.
                - COR < 0: There is evidence that A and B are anti-correlated.  That is,
                  when A happens B is unlikely to happen and vise versa.  The larger the
                  magnitude of COR the more evidence we have for the anti-correlation.

              following paper:

                This object represents something that can learn to normalize a set 
                of column vectors.  In particular, normalized column vectors should 
                have zero mean and a variance of one.  

                Also, if desired, this object can use principal component 
                analysis for the purposes of reducing the number of elements in a 
                vector.  

            THREAD SAFETY
                Note that this object contains a cached matrix object it uses 
                to store intermediate results for normalization.  This avoids
                needing to reallocate it every time this object performs normalization
                but also makes it non-thread safe.  So make sure you don't share
                instances of this object between threads.
