Is this article needed? Information entropy certainly includes Binary entropy. Jaraalbe 20:31, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

There is nothing in information entropy about this function in particular but its graph. It is an important special case of information entropy. WikiC 18:15, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

So, what is the difference (definition/statistical/philosophical/?) between the Binary Entropy Function and the entropy listed at Bernoulli distribution. This uses Log2, the other uses Natural Logarithm. When are the different definitions used? Rick21784 (talk) 19:28, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
