Information entropy re-defined in a category theory context using preradicals

  title={Information entropy re-defined in a category theory context using preradicals},
  author={G. SebastianPardo and Gabriel A. Silva},
Algebraically, entropy can be defined for abelian groups and their endomorphisms, and was latter extended to consider objects in a Flow category derived from abelian categories, such as R-Mod with R a ring. Preradicals are endofunctors which can be realized as compatible choice assignments in the category where they are defined. Here we present a formal definition of entropy for preradicals on R-Mod and show that the concept of entropy for preradicals respects their order as a big lattice. Also… 


Some isomorphic big lattices and some properties of lattice preradicals
According to Albu and Iosif, [2, Definition 1.1] a lattice preradical is a subfunctor of the identity functor on the category [Formula: see text] of linear modular lattices, whose objects are the
On the connection between the representation type of an algebra and its lattice of preradicals
ABSTRACT In this paper, we study lattices of preradicals which are not small classes (in which case we say that the corresponding rings are p-large), and specially we consider some infinite
A general notion of algebraic entropy and the rank-entropy
A general definition of a subadditive invariant i of Mod(R), and the related notion of algebraic entropy of endomorphisms of R-modules, with respect to i, and it is shown that the rank-entropy satisfies the Addition Theorem.
Entropy in a Category
The concept of entropy function h of an abelian category is introduced, and the Pinsker radical with respect to h is defined, so that the class of all objects with trivial P Insker radical is the torsion-free class of a torsionsion theory.
A soft introduction to algebraic entropy
AbstractThe goal of this mainly expository paper is to develop the theory of the algebraic entropy in the basic setting of vector spaces V over a field K. Many complications encountered in more
Topological entropy
With the proper substitutions of 31,93 and the cover ¡Xj in the statement above the authors obtain 31<;3lv93 and 93 -< 3lv93 which reveals that the family of open covers is a directed set with respect to the relation -< .

Lattice preradicals versus module preradicals
This paper investigates the connections between lattice preradicals and module preradicals. We show that to any lattice preradical one associates in a canonical way a module preradical, but not
