Title:Topological Entropy of Finite Sequences
Seminar:Seminar on Probability and its Application
Speaker:David Koslicki, PSU
Topological entropy has been one of the most difficult to implement of all the entropy-theoretic notions for finite sequences. This is primarily due to finite sample effects and high-dimensionality problems. We define a new approximation of topological entropy free from the aforementioned difficulties and use the recent results of Gheorghiciuc and Ward (2007) to compute the expected value. An application includes distinguishing between functional regions of the human genome as well as gene detection in general.
