The redundancy can be viewed as inequality, lack of diversity, non-randomness, compressibility, or segregation in the data.[citation needed] The primary use is for income inequality.[1] It is equal to the definition of redundancy in information theory that is based on Shannon entropy when α = 1 which is also called the Theil index (TT) in income inequality research. Completely "diverse" data has no redundancy so that GE=0, so that it increases in the opposite direction of a Diversity index. It increases with order rather than disorder, so it is a negated measure of entropy.<br /><br />Thank-You<br /><a href="http:/www.mastermindabacus.com" rel="nofollow">Abacus</a>Max Brockhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04736082047671647551noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-75811867996418655232012-06-17T21:22:29.113-07:002012-06-17T21:22:29.113-07:00"Tsallis entropy" link is broken: I assu..."Tsallis entropy" link is broken: I assume it should be to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsallis_entropyAnonymousnoreply@blogger.com
