Thermodynamics and statistical physics describe the behavior of systems with many interacting degrees of freedom. This chapter focuses on tools for measuring the complexity of systems with many degrees of freedom. It then introduces the measure of complexity, and the entropy.

From the Back Cover. This book explores not only the connections between quantum and classical physics, information and its transfer, computation, and their significance for the formulation of physical theories, but it also considers the origins evolution of the information-processing entities, their complexity, and the manner in which they analyze their perceptions to form models of the sinoppazari.coms: 3.

The amount of information conveyed by each event defined in this way becomes a random variable whose expected value is the information entropy. Generally, entropy refers to disorder or uncertainty, and the definition of entropy used in information theory is directly analogous to . Get this from a library!
