Shannon entropies were obtained from RGB and gray channels, and of HL, LH, and HH bands decomposed by DWT.
Then we define the joint and conditional entropies between them as follows
Therefore, we make the model capable of taking into account possible linear relations between the size of the entropies and the magnitude of the estimated apexes.
In comparing entropies of the FPI to the other markets, the empirical results at the 99 and 95 percent significance levels induced two possible ranking scenarios (Table 4).
Whether the cybernetic qualities of such values are studied or ignored, the values affect changes in the complexion entropies of the entities entering into exchange.

Two entropies are estimated in the time domain, one using Shannon's formula and the other using data compression.
Sub-additivity is well known for quantum entropies [8], but here we proved the sub-additivity of entropy rates for classical systems, which is caused by different descriptions of the same system: the entropy rate of the undecomposed system is smaller than that of the composite system.
16) The arising Yockey-Elitzur paradox has a crucial importance and may be resolved when realizing that organization acts between different molecules, all of which have relatively high entropies and randomness, yet simultaneously are related to each other.
This means that as the population evolves, we can track how the allelic and the phenotypic entropies each change.
the information content is defined as a difference of entropies
Then, we represented the Shannon entropies of the burst and suppression obtained from the burst suppression in Figure 4(a) as upward-pointing triangles and downward-pointing triangles, respectively, all identified and distinguished clearly by the solid nonlinear line, the decision boundary determined by (9).
