The concept of entropy emerges initially from the scope of physics, but it is now clear that entropy is deeply related to information theory and the process of inference. Today, entropic techniques have found a broad spectrum of applications in all branches of science.
This Special Issue will include the following main directions, which reflect the interdisciplinary nature of entropy and its applications:
Information theory, probability, and statistics
Quantum information and foundations
Entropy in multidisciplinary applications
This Special Issue will publish, among other pieces, the extended versions of papers presented at the Entropy 2020 conference. It is, however, open to any other contributions related to the subjects of the Entropy 2020 conference.
