1. Since the introduction of the information measure widely known as Shannon entropy, quantifiers based on information theory and concepts such as entropic forms and statistical complexities have proven to be useful in diverse scientific research fields. This book contains introductory tutorials suitable for the general reader, together with chapters dedicated to the basic concepts of the most frequently employed information measures or quantifiers and their recent applications to different areas, including physics, biology, medicine, economics, communication and social sciences. As these quantifiers are powerful tools for the study of general time and data series independently of their sources, this book will be useful to all those doing research connected with information analysis.
The tutorials in this volume are written at a broadly accessible level and readers will have the opportunity to acquire the knowledge necessary to use the information theory tools in their field of interest.
