Permutation Entropies and Chaos

  title={Permutation Entropies and Chaos},
  author={Russell Stewart Hawkins},
Permutation entropy is a metric used to quantify the regularity of a time series. Here I report on its application to the problem of characterizing the behavior of a few nonlinear dynamical systems, specifically the Duffing oscillator and the Tent and Logistic maps. Numerical results indicate that the permutation entropy can in principle be used to detemine the entropy rate of a system, and thus whether it is chaotic or not, but that in practice the convergence is slow. Additionally…

Permutation entropy: a natural complexity measure for time series.
The method introduces complexity parameters for time series based on comparison of neighboring values and shows that its complexity behaves similar to Lyapunov exponents, and is particularly useful in the presence of dynamical or observational noise.
Permutation Excess Entropy and Mutual Information between the Past and Future
It is shown that the permutation excess entropy is equal to the mutual information between two adjacent semi-infinite blocks in the space of orderings for finite-state stationary ergodic Markov processes.
