A method of estimating the Kolmogorov-Sinai (KS) entropy, herein referred to as the modified correlation entropy, is presented. The method can be applied to both noise-free and noisy chaotic time series. It has been applied to some clean and noisy data sets and the numerical results show that the modified correlation entropy is closer to the KS entropy of the nonlinear system calculated by the Lyapunov spectrum than the general correlation entropy. Moreover, the modified correlation entropy is more robust to noise than the correlation entropy.

    • "Lyapunov exponents are very difficult, if not impossible , to be estimated when analyzing data coming from complex systems. Therefore, alternative ways to calculate the KS entropy, instead of applying Pesin's identity, should be taken into consideration [17], [18]. In this work we investigate the properties of a novel measure based on information theory, called permutation entropy (PE) [19], as an alternative to estimate the unpredictability of chaotic time traces.

    ABSTRACT: The time evolution of the output of a semiconductor laser subject to delayed optical feedback can exhibit high-dimensional chaotic fluctuations. In this contribution, our aim is to quantify the degree of unpredictability of this hyperchaotic time evolution. To that end, we estimate permutation entropy, a novel information-theory-derived quantifier particularly robust in a noisy environment. The permutation entropy is defined as a functional of a symbolic probability distribution, evaluated using the Bandt-Pompe recipe to assign a probability distribution function to the time series generated by the chaotic system. This measure quantifies the diversity of orderings present in the associated time series. In order to evaluate the performance of this novel quantifier, we compare with the results obtained by using a more standard chaos quantifier, namely the Kolmogorov-Sinai entropy. Here, we present numerical results showing that the permutation entropy, evaluated at specific time-scales involved in the chaotic regime of the semiconductor laser subject to optical feedback, give valuable information about the degree of unpredictability of the chaotic laser dynamics. The influence of additive observational noise on the proposed tool is also investigated.

    ABSTRACT: Patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) usually suffer from hypokinetic dysarthria (HD), which involves impairment of phonation, articulation, prosody, and speech fluency. Our paper deals with parameters that can be used for the evaluation of motor aspects of speech and relevant methods of data acquisition and analysis. A review of specific parameters of HD and methods used for their evaluation may from the practical point of view contribute both to the diagnostic approaches to HD and to the development of suitable measures for assessment of its progression. The paper gives a description of the most frequently used parameters and their optimization to enable the best possible automatic classification of the various stages of Parkinson's disease.

    ABSTRACT: The correlation sum and the correlation integral for chaotic time series using the Supremum norm and the Euclidean norm are discussed. The correlation integrals are then used to develop governing equations for the correlation sum, noise level and correlation dimension in which the correlation dimension and the noise level are linearly dependent on each other. Some linear estimation methods for the noise level are then introduced by using these equations. The estimation methods are applied to four chaotic time series (two artificial and two real-world). By comparing the performances of the estimations of the noise level, the best estimating method is then suggested.
