This review provides a summary of methods originated in (non-equilibrium) statistical mechanics and information theory, which have recently found successful applications to quantitatively studying complexity in various components of the complex Entropy 2013, 15 4845 system Earth. Specifically, we discuss two classes of methods: (i) entropies of different… CONTINUE READING
