We study the relation between the discrete-time version of the flashing ratchet known as Parrondo's games and a compression technique used very recently with thermal ratchets for evaluating the transfer of information -negentropy -between the Brownian particle and the source of fluctuations. We present some results concerning different versions of Parrondo's games showing, for each case, a good qualitative agreement between the gain and the variation of the entropy.doi:10.1142/s0219477505002409 fatcat:q5524gf24fdmniv4wzkfanenm4
