Interpretation[edit]

Removed parenthetical notation implying that "less predictable" and "more complex" are equivalent with respect to data sets describing measurements of processes. This is a highly contentious point within dynamical systems theory, and the comparison isn't doing any important work in the article, so it is better to simply not mention the issue. - RealityApologist (talk) 04:12, 11 January 2013 (UTC)

Algorithm[edit]

The algorithm from this article is different than the one cited (http://physionet.org/physiotools/ApEn/) but also different than one of Pincus' article (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC51218/?page=3). I suspect the physionet one is the correct version.

The is also an inconsistency between the formula used for ApEn in the algorithm and the example. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.112.123.231 (talk) 20:17, 23 October 2013 (UTC)
