Title: Entropy, maximum entropy, and the maximum entropy method
Abstract: The maximum entropy method has been used for the recovery of density functions in physical science and engineering. We introduce the concept of entropy and describe Jaynes’ maximum entropy principle. Then we incorporate the principle with finite elements to develop a maximum entropy method for the statistical and computational study of chaos.
