Special Issue in Entropy: The 20th Anniversary of Entropy - Approximate and Sample Entropy
Traditional entropy measures quantify the irregularity of time series on a single scale. For example, approximate entropy (ApEn) is a measure of the regularity of a process that is related to Shannon’s entropy. Sample Entropy (SampEn) is a refinement of the ApEn, which is a more robust and less biased statistic. On the other hand, multiscale entropy (MSE) has been proposed to evaluate the complexity of time series by taking into account the multiple time scales in physical systems. MSE can be applied both to physical and physiological data sets and can be used with a variety of entropy measures (ApEn, SampEn, permutation entropy, distribution entropy, dispersion entropy, etc.). MSE has found many applications in biosignal analysis and has been extended to multivariate MSE. These approaches (ApEn, SampEn, and MSE) have received a great deal of attention and have been used in a wide range of applications.
In this Special Issue, we would like to collect papers focusing on both the theory and applications of MSE, SampEn or ApEn. Applications can include (but are not limited to) biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, hydrology, pharmaceutical sciences, financial analyses, neurosciences, industrial engineering, geosciences, information sciences, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
