Title: Recursive symbolic Encoding and Hierarchical Description of Complex Systems
Book Title: Information Dynamics
Editors: Atmanspacher,H Scheingraber,H
Publisher: Plenum Press, New York, pages: 35-43
Comments: Disusses the problem of quantifying complexity in the framework of a hierarchical modeling of physical systems encoded by a partition of their phase space. Complexity, relative to a hierarchical scheme using prefic-free codes, is evaluated through a generalisation of the information gain by comparing prediction with observation.
