Dynamic entropies, long-range correlations, and fluctuations in complex linear structures [article]

Werner Ebeling, Alexander Neiman, Thorsten Poeschel
2002 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate symbolic sequences and in particular information carriers as e.g. books and DNA-strings. First the higher order Shannon entropies are calculated, a characteristic root law is detected.  ...  The longest correlations found in our analysis comprise a few hundreds or thousands of letters and may be understood as long-wave fluctuations of the composition.  ...  Conclusions Our results show that the dynamic entropies, the low frequency spectra and the scaling of the mean square deviations, are appropriate measures for the long-range correlations in symbolic sequences  ...

Information Measure for Long-Range Correlated Sequences: the Case of the 24 Human Chromosomes

A. Carbone
2013 Scientific Reports  
A new approach to estimate the Shannon entropy of a long-range correlated sequence is proposed.  ...  The entropy is written as the sum of two terms corresponding respectively to power-law (ordered) and exponentially (disordered) distributed blocks (clusters).  ...  In this work, an information measure for long-range correlated sequences, worked out from a partition of the sequence into clusters according to the method proposed in 8, 9 , is put forward.  ...

Complexity Estimation of Genetic Sequences Using Information-Theoretic and Frequency Analysis Methods

Robertas Damaševičius
2010 Informatica  
In this paper, the complexity of genetic sequences is estimated using Shannon entropy, Rényi entropy and relative Kolmogorov complexity.  ...  The genetic information in cells is stored in DNA sequences, represented by a string of four letters, each corresponding to a definite type of nucleotides.  ...  The existence of structures at very large scales results in long-range correlations.  ...

In the search for the low-complexity sequences in prokaryotic and eukaryotic genomes: how to derive a coherent picture from global and local entropy measures

2004 Chaos, Solitons & Fractals  
We show that there exists a correlation between changing the amount in LCS and the ratio of long- to short-range correlation.  ...  We investigate on a possible way to connect the presence of Low-Complexity Sequences (LCS) in DNA genomes and the nonstationary properties of base correlations.  ...  The CMM model of DNA In recent years many groups have agreed to consider DNA sequences as a mixture of long-and short-range correlation, the latter blurring the strength of the former.  ...

Entropy and Long-Range Correlations in Literary English

W Ebeling, T Pöschel
1994 Europhysics letters  
We investigated long range correlations in two literary texts, Moby Dick by H. Melville and Grimm's tales.  ...  Filtering out the contributions due to the effects of the finite length of the texts, we find correlations ranging to a few hundred letters.  ...  Nicolis and A. Schmitt for fruitful discussions. Further we thank the Project Gutenberg Etext at Illinois Benedictine College for providing the ASCII-files of the investigated literature.  ...
