Entropies and entropy-like quantities are playing an increasing role in modern nonlinear data analysis. The fields of their application reach from diagnostics in physiology, for instance, electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), and electrocardiography (ECG), to econophysics and engineering. During the last few years, classical concepts such as approximate entropy and sample entropy have been supplemented by new entropy measures, like permutation entropy and various variants of it. Recent developments are focused on multidimensional generalizations of the concepts with a special emphasis on the quantification of coupling between time series and system components behind them.
Many of the considered entropy-based concepts and approaches are not fully understood, and there is a need for systematically exploring what and how much information of a data set and the systems behind the entropy measures they contain. In this context, the use of entropy measures as features in learning theory and as an instrument of data science is of some special interest. Not surprisingly, special emphasis has to be placed on the development of fast and efficient algorithms for determining and dealing with entropy measures in the case of large and complex data sets.

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.
