This is a small set of functions on top of NumPy that help to compute different types of entropy for time series analysis.

  • Shannon Entropy shannon_entropy

  • Sample Entropy sample_entropy

  • Multiscale Entropy multiscale_entropy

  • Composite Multiscale Entropy composite_multiscale_entropy

  • Permutation Entropy permutation_entropy

  • Multiscale Permutation Entropy multiscale_permutation_entropy

  • Weighted Permutation Entropy weighted_permutation_entropy

Quick start

pip install pyentrp


from pyentrp import entropy as ent
import numpy as np

ts = [1, 4, 5, 1, 7, 3, 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 7, 3, 7, 9, 5, 4, 3]
std_ts = np.std(ts)
sample_entropy = ent.sample_entropy(ts, 4, 0.2 * std_ts)
