NSB Entropy Estimation and related information theoretic quantities from undersampled discrete data

Published:

Last Edited: July 16, 2009, 12:13 am

We will be adding entropy studies into random numerical/pattern sequences research.

This research sparked my interest as it pertains directly to undersampled data.

Reference 3 points out possible applications of this algorithm:

Dynamical systems

1. Complexity of dynamics
2. Dimensions of strange attractors

as well as

"rare events statistics"

Reference 3, is actually extremely interesting even outside of theme of study we are doing (random games, random sequences), in fact, NSB Entropy is used by bio-physicist to study "emergence" of intelligent behaviour...
