Special Issue in Entropy: Multiscale Entropy Approaches and Their Applications
Multiscale entropy has been proposed to evaluate the complexity of time series by taking into account the multiple time scales in physical systems. For this purpose, the entropy values assigned to the time series under study are considered but the ones of the coarse-grained time series - that represent the system’s dynamics on different scales - are also analyzed. In biomedicine, multiscale entropy has risen as a complexity measure compatible with the unifying concept that healthy systems, regulated by various control mechanisms acting on multiple time scales, are more complex than pathologic ones for which such mechanisms are degraded. Multiscale entropy is, therefore, gaining many new applications in broad areas of medicine.
For this Special Issue of Entropy, we solicit contributions of new and original research on the concept of multiscale entropy and on the use of multiscale entropy in medicine and biology.

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.
