Special Issue in Entropy: Distance in Information and Statistical Physics 2021
Fisher information was originally put forth in statistical estimation theory and it has been an important tool to analyze systems. Although it has not received enough attention from researchers in other fields, this unappreciated situation seem to be changing gradually. Indeed, statistical physics and thermodynamics have a deep relation to this notion. In addition, astronomy, as well as biosciences, reap most of the benefits through big data analysis via Fisher information.
In this Special Issue, we would like to focus on the various aspects of Fisher information and its applications in sciences. Papers that broaden the horizon are welcome.

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 1800 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.
