Pincus, S. () Approximate Entropy (ApEn) as a Complexity Measure. Chaos, 5, APPROXIMATE ENTROPY: A COMPLEXITY MEASURE FOR. BIOLOGICAL family of statistics, ApEn, that can classify complex systems, given at least I In statistics, an approximate entropy (ApEn) is a technique used to quantify the amount of Regularity was originally measured by exact regularity statistics, which has mainly “Approximate entropy as a measure of system complexity”.

It should be noted that has significant weaknesses, notably its strong dependence on sequence length and its poor self-consistency i.
Citations Publications citing this paper. A notion of behavioural entropy and hysteresis is introduced as two different forms of compound measures. Hence is either ordepending onand the mean value of all 46 of the is: The second of these parameters,specifies the pattern length, and the third,defines the criterion of similarity.
The value is very small, so xs implies the sequence is regular and predictable, which is consistent with the observation. Applied MathematicsVol. Pincus to handle complexit limitations by modifying an exact regularity statistic, Kolmogorov—Sinai entropy. What does regularity quantify? The development of ApEn was motivated by data alen constraints commonly encountered, e. Predicting survival in heart failure case and control subjects by use of fully automated methods for deriving nonlinear and conventional indices of heart rate dynamics.

Approximate entropy (ApEn) as a complexity measure.
The ApEn algorithm counts each sequence as matching itself to avoid the occurrence of ln 0 in the calculations. This is a very small value of ApEn, which suggests that the original time series is highly predictable as indeed it is.
The advantages of ApEn include: Approximate entropy as a measure of system complexity. Fuzzy approximate entropy analysis of resting state fMRI signal complexity across the adult life span.
