In information theory, the entropy of a random variable is the average level of "information", "surprise", or "uncertainty" inherent in the variable's possible outcomes. The concept of information entropy was introduced by Claude Shannon in his paper "A Mathematical Theory of Communication". As an example, consider a biased coin with probability p of landing on heads and probability 1-p. Ben-Naim, A. (). The Structure of the Foundations of Statistical Thermodynamics.
