Graphical Study on the Entropy of Order Statistics

  • Published : 1998.08.01


The entropy measure is considered to denote the uncertainty of order statistics filters and choose the length of consecutive order statistic filters. However, it needs much calculations to get the amount of the entropy of all possible sets of consecutive order statistics, and the results of those calculations return many numerical values. Thus we provide an efficient graphical presentation of those numerical values, which make it easy to understand the distribution of the entropy among order statistics.
