information entropy

n.
In information theory, a mathematical measure of the degree of randomness in a set of data, with greater randomness implying higher entropy and greater predictability implying lower entropy. Also called Shannon entropy.

However, in the network connection examined in this paper, Shannon's theory can no longer be applied; as the network connection and context are not fixed, changing unpredictably and rapidly throughout the system, it requires an evaluation outside the conceptual framework of traditional information entropy theory.
