Rating Systems attempt to assign a numeric measure to a player's strength based upon the player's results in games against other players. There are a number of rating systems in use across the globe. Some ratings systems are limited to particular countries or organizations others span either a continent or the entire globe via Internet play.

[1] [ext] http://kashi.dip.jp/~kashi/rating/rating.pdf seems to comprise interesting content w.r.t. ELO (I guess, tderz). As it is written in Japanese (which I cannot read beyond some Igo-terminology) s.o. else might comment more on it.
Some figures resemble derivative pricing model graphs near expiration, where volatility goes up and normal Black & Scholes do not hold anymore.
With Go that would be slightly different: near same strengths encounters give very predictable results,
high strength difference encounters bear high uncertainty/volatility/deviation.
