Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The notion of distance plays a pivotal role in information sciences and statistical physics. For example, relative entropy helps our understanding of the asymptotic process of systems and serves to identify how distinguishable two distributions are. It is not exaggerated to say that much effort revolves around clarification of information structure pertain to distance measures (entropies). This special issue should provide a forum to present and discuss recent progress on the topics listed in the keywords below.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
