I thanks to all of you for the intriguing posts. I keep following the discussion.

----H.G. Muller----
Empirical values of symmetric short-range leapers suggest that the the value is mainly determined by the number N of moves they have (when unobstructed), according to the approximate formula value (30+5/8*N)*N. Measurements on asymmetric and divergent pieces suggest that forward moves in this respect contribute roughly twice as much value as sideway or backward moves, and captures contribute roughly twice as much as non-captures.

I need examples for determining the value of N. The pawn move in 1 square (forward move) and capture in 2 square (forward moves). The ferz move and capture in 4 square (2 forward moves and 2 backward moves) and it is color-bond. How the value of N is calculated for pawn and ferz?
