Introduction In this paper, I study \entropy" as a quantity deened axiomatically by certain formal properties, independently of any particular mathematical context. In particular , unlike all previous attempts to axiomatize information theory which are… (More)

This article presents a near real-time processing solution using MapReduce and Hadoop. The solution is aimed at some of the data management and processing challenges facing the life sciences community. Research into genes and their product proteins generates huge volumes of data that must be extensively preprocessed before any biological insight can be… (More)

I shall explain how these entropies are all deened in the setting of shift dynamical systems. The main result of the paper, which should be regarded as part of the folklore, is the fact that for… (More)
